Shimmery Butterfly Trio

Hi folks! I've been in a butterfly mood today so I'm sharing this Shimmery Butterfly Trio card using several products from Classy Cards 'n Such:

Exotic Butterfly, Small (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Angel Wing, Small (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Exotic Butterfly, Small #2 (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Angel Wing, Small #2 (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Ecru Delight Lace

I die cut all the butterflies from vanilla cardstock, and then I sponged them with a touch of Antique Linen distress ink to give them a subtle aged look. Then I die cut all the angel wings from rose cardstock and I sprayed them with a homemade shimmer spray (That Shimmering Touch technique from Technique Junkies). You can see the shimmer on the rose angel wings through the holes in the butterfly wings.

I cut a strip of sage designer paper and adhered the Ecru Delight lace on both sides before adhering the designer paper to some artichoke cardstock. I glued down the butterflies to the center of the designer paper and then adhered the whole thing to an ivory card base. I can stamp any sentiment on the inside of this card - birthday, thank you, get well, congratulations, and even a sympathy sentiment would be wonderful with this.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Emerald Fairies #30 - Punches and Dies
