Beautiful Butterfly Card 1

My sister asked me to make her a card for a friend with the specifications that she liked butterflies and purple.  It took me a while to find my creative stride but I had a lot of time playing with thinlits and stamps until I was able to create a couple of cards that I was really happy with.  

I picked 2 purples - Wisteria Wonder and Perfect Plum.  I used the Butterflies Thinlits and die cut the smaller beautiful butterfly.  I added some Wink of Stella of course and he is very shiny.  I mounted the whisper white on the Perfect Plum cardstock and added the greeting from the Cool Treats Stamp Set - I just love this greeting it is big, bold and gorgeous.  I used Perfect Plum for the sentiment. I then added some ink splotches from the Perpetual Calendar Stamp Set which has so many great background ideas, using Wisteria Wonder ink.  Finally I just glued down the centre of the butterfly using fast fuse.  I wanted to be able to lift the wings for some dimension.  Finally I added 3 rhinestones on the body and the front of the cards was complete.  

Inside I stamped a greeting from the Pretty Kitty Stamp Set "Hope your birthday is just like you... WONDERFUL  in every way" in Perfect Plum Ink and stamped a small butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set in Wisteria Wonder Ink.  Not to be left out, I stamped the small butterfly again on the back of the envelope and a bigger butterfly from the same Stamp Set on the front bottom right.
