MTME Pretty Patterns #41

Good Morning!  I am so glad we're back with the Pretty Patterns challenges.  I have been looking forward to playing with this sketch and glitters!  I hope you like this.

My card features a beautiful butterfly set called All A Flutter....

I printed an outlined image and cut it out into a 2" base.  This is where I added glue and glitter.  I fussy cut the detail image of the butterfly and the blacked out the white card stock with a Copic marker #100.  Looking at it close up isn't so pretty, but it accomplished what I needed.  Then I put my card together and finished it with ribbon, a couple of cheater bows (see this great video from Fabulously Artsy) and a sugar-coated brad.

I then added a lot of bling.  Not only the glitter that I've been dying to use, but added silver pearls I got from the $1 bin at Joann's and green rhinestones that I was given from Simon Says. 

My card also fits the challenge over at iCopic Lover.  I think I did an over the top amount of bling with all the glitter and rhinestone.
