Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday #101

Hello Crafty Friends!

"A GOOD FRIEND IS CHEAPER THAN THERAPY"

This is my submission for the
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday #101












FCCB #101: Luck of the Irish
Make a project using a shamrock or the color green.

For this card, I used a white 5"x5" base.  The paper is from DCWV -- "Everyday" Extreme Paper Stack.  I cut out the butterflies using a Martha Stewart punch.  I layered 2 butterflies, adhered only the "body" and folded up the wings to create movement.  I used green stickles to accent the body.  For the flowers, I used the Create A Critter Cartridge.  I adhered the stems to the cardstock, and used foam dots under the petals for some dimension.  I also used stickles for a little sparkle.  I used green and white twine, pink rhinestones, and the green polka dotted flower from my stash to add interest.  For the inside, I used pink cardstock, and a pink gelly roll pen to create "stitching".  The sentiment is from 7 Gypsies clear stamps, "INK FRIENDS".


I am also linking this card to the following challenge:
