Easter Butterflies - Stampin' Up! Butterfly Gala

I am on a roll the last few days with participating in challenges and actually getting them posted during the challenge time frame!  It's a spring miracle!  And speaking of spring we have sunshine today!

  My card today is inspired by the CAS(e) This Sketch challenge.  It's a fun little off center layout which I flipped to the side just because I can!

 So I had a bunch of small pieces of the Gingham Gala DSP that I thought would be perfect for the polka dots in this sketch.  I cut out various sizes in all 5 colors and layered them on a piece of Whisper White that is embossed with the Subtle embossing folder and then cut with a Stitched Rectangle framelit.

  The butterflies are stamped in Memento and then colored with Highland Heather and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends.  They are punched and popped on dimensionals over the top of the circles.

  I added some iridescent sequins that are long retired or leftover from a Paper Pumpkin kit...I really have no idea!

  The final thing is the Easter sentiment stamped in Memento black.  Looking at it now I should have stamped it before doing the embossing because it's a bit uneven. Oh well.

  When I showed this one to my husband he wanted to know why it is so empty on the other side of the card...*sigh*  Anyway I think it came out cute and I made a set of 6 to have on hand.  Now I just need to remember to send them out!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
