Wedding card

I'm getting ready to go to another wedding today. So of course I needed to make a card. This morning. After returning from the gym. If it wasn't for the last minute, I wouldn't get anything done. Please don't ask the status on my homework. Anyway, this morning I came across a new-to-me blog (Crafts-International) that had a big list of challenges, many of which I hadn't seen before. So I used one of those challenges for this card.






I followed the sketch on the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge (Challenge #40). They do a monthly prize drawing from the crafters who do their challenges and link it on their blog. You should definitely check it out! Okay, I made this card using DCWV papers (patterned papers and textured cardstock) and CTMH cardstock in White Daisy. Stamps used were CTMH Butterfly Wishes, Treasure Life (sentiment on the inside), and For Every Occasion. Inks used were CTMH Crystal Blue and Twilight. Embellishments are Bellas Baubles and Craft Essentials ricrac. I used a Prismacolor Premier marker in Cool Grey to outline the butterfly, and colored his body and antenna with a Gelly Roll pen. Instead of using the circle shown in the sketch, I used my Nestabilities Labels 1 (and, of course, I mounted it with 3-D Mounting Foam).
