Big Blingy Butterfly...

So I made this really fun card today!  And I had to stop in and share!  I was recently at the dollar store buying some of those cheap little toys for the kids Easter baskets, when I found these super cute butterflies!  They were 2 for a dollar and all big and blingy and cute!  So, of course, I bought them!  I knew when I saw them, they had to go on a card!  So, I decided to pull out my clear cardstock, which I have never used by the way, and whip up a card! 
So here is my first, clear card creation...with a big blingy butterfly!


I tried my best to take pictures that would do the card justice but it was hard with the glare of the clear cardstock! 

This next one shows the black layer on the back of the card a little better....



And this one shows a nice close up of that adorable butterfly!

Thanks for coming by today!  Hope you have a great weekend!


Supplies:
Stamps: PTI's Polka Dot Basics I, Signature Greetings
Ink: Noir Palette, Fresh Snow
Paper: PTI Black and Plum Pudding
Misc: SU Top Note Die, Big Blingy Dollar Store Butterfly, Clear Cardstock

  9. LOVE this, the butterfly is FABULOUS!! I got a similar butterfly at an after Christmas sale for something like 10 cents (I would have bought more but it was the last one!) I might have to case your card :)
