Three Butterflies

I love the way the colors came out on this card.   I will add a sentiment later when I decide how to use it.  It was make following one of the sketches at RAQs Challenge on the Cricut message board.  This challenge is one of my favorite places for inspiration because I love following sketches (in fact I find it hard to make a card without one) and all the ladies that participate are so talented and kind.  Check it out if you get on the Cricut message board, a new challenge comes out every Wednesday and it runs for a week, here is a link to this weeks challenge RAQ's Challenge, the only rules is to have fun and share your creations.
So here is my card.

The paper does most of the work on this one, the background paper is from The Best of K&Company, what a fabulous stack this is, it has 360 pieces of paper in it.
All the red parts are cut from plain white cardstock that I covered with red StazOn ink and then sprayed with scarlet Glimmer mist.  The fancy cut along the left side was cut from the Paper Lace cartridge, the butterflies are from Stamping and the swirl on the bottom is from Serenade.  The fancy cut along the side I wove a piece of ribbon through and then also squared off a frame with that ribbon on the card.
Here is a close up of the butterflies.

I added some Martha Stewart glass beads to the body of the butterflies to give some extra bling and dress them up a bit.
I am so happy that you decided to stop by my blog, I would love it if you left a comment, thanks
