Crafty Cardmakers DT - Bugs!

The weeks are passing really quickly and it's time for our team's next challenge at Crafty Cardmakers & More.
This time Kim has set the theme - 'Its a Bug's Life' - so anything which has a  butterfly, dragonfly, ladybird or any other INSECT as your main image or focal point.
I opted to do a CAS card this time and a rectangular one instead of my usual square offerings to use up the rest of the card from my previous post!

This was a quick card and meant I could also use up some scraps of polka dot paper.
Simply punched out the butterflies and overlaid the linen textured card.

Some co ordinating polka dot ribbon from my stash tied round the top. 
Raised it up onto the base card with foam pads after stamping and embossing the sentiment with Turquoise Versacolour ink and clear embossing powder.  

Added a few tiny sparklies to the centres of the butterfly bodies.
Another card for the 'not too expensive to post 'pink' stash box'!
Hope you can join us with your insecty creations this time round - one of the two fab prizes from our sponsors may be heading your way!
