Fluttering by card

I just finished up this cute butterfly card. I cut the butterfly from Best of 2008 Cricut cart but this cut is also found on the Home Accents cart. I just cut the base out of purple textured card stock. 

I outlined the wings with orchid twine from the twinery and used Caribbean for the body. I also added two dots of orcid to the wings and 4 dots of caribbean to the wings as well as a caribbean swirl to show that the butterfly was flying. 

The butterfly is on pop dots and the twine is all adhered with Zig glue (I used a fine tip pen).

The pink dot paper is from DCWV Nursery Baby Girl stack. The blue cloud paper is from Recollections and I cut the banner shape by hand and inked the edges in blue. I added the sentiment  stamped in black, love the stamps but never use them. The card base is white card stock from recollections.

Hope you found this as cute as I did :).

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
