Hello Mr. Bright Side

I've just got a quick little card for you today and not a lot of chitchat. Lots to do and this is the first chance I've had to get to my computer.

This is another good layout for those artist trading cards (ATC's), as the image panel is 2.5" x 3.5". I used a long scallop rectangle (Nestabilities) for the black mat, and just cut the ends off to make it the length of the card. The papers are from the Junkitz Salsa collection. I stamped the butterfly from Fluttering By on classic cream and then again on the teal paper and paper pieced it, popping the wings up for some dimension. I added some green rhinestones to the paper and the butterfly's body for some sparkle, and then paper pierced the two corners of the image panel. The sentiment is also from Fluttering By and then I stamped the butterfly inside the card and colored with Copic markers. A really simple, but fun card.
