SU Only.....Congratulations

Happy Tuesday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made for the challenge at SUO Challenge Blog.

It was a fairly easy challenge: Butterflies.

Well, after just now going back and re reading the challenge it says to make the Butterfly the highlight, so maybe my card does not meet that qualification. I guess the flower is more the highlight of my card :/

I started my card using a base of  Smoky Slate card stock. 
Next I layered a piece of the Color Me Irresistible Specialty Designer Series Paper with some Black Card stock and cut the end into a banner shape.

The flower is from the Stampin Up You've Got This.
I stamped with Black Stazon onto some Thick Whisper White and colored with my Aqua Painter.

I colored with Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry and Old Olive ink. I then fussy cut out the flower and added some dimensionals to the back.

I scrunched up some of the Silver Metallic thread and added it to the black paper with some glue dots. I really haven't got the hang of how to do that exactly.

I then added the flower. The sentiment is from  the Zoo babies stamp set.

I added a bit of DSP from the Neutrals pack punched with my small banner punch and then stamped a little butterfly and cut it out and added it on the banner,
I put a couple of small pearls down the center of the butterfly and added a bit more silver metallic to the butterfly for his antennas.

Well, that is all from me today! Thanks for stopping by
