Freshly Made Sketches #480 with Butterfly Duet Punch and DSP

 Hello and thx for visiting!

Todays card is super fun and easy to create!  The Freshly Made Sketches Challenge from Jen B just made me think of butterflies fluttering along gracefully in a group. I hope I've captured that here.  Please click on my card or the image for Freshly Made Sketches to go directly to their blog post.  And give it a try, create a sweeping graceful focal point for a card!  

Here's the card details:
5 1/2 x 4 1/4 Flirty Flamingo card base ( 5 1/2 x 8 1/4 folded in half)
4 x 5 1/4 Fine Art Floral Designers Series Paper (dsp)
1/2 x 2 1/8 strip of Basic White card stock for the sentiment
3/4 x 2 1/4 strip of Flirty Flamingo card stock

Assembly & 'Trix'  :)
*  Adhere the dsp to the Flirty Flamingo card stock.  I love this dsp because of the subtle weaving pattern throughout, and I thought it was perfect for the sweeping graceful butterflies.
*  Stamp the sentiment from the Springtime Joy stamp set in Old Olive ink and attach to the Flirty Flamingo strip with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
*  Punch eight butterflies from the flip side of the dsp.  I loved the random colours that appeared on the butterflies using this particular pattern.
***  Lay the butterflies on the paper first to find a flowing pattern.  Align with the sentiment strip.
*  Adhere the sentiment strip and each butterfly using Multipurpose Liquid Glue on one side of each butterfly or the centre, whichever you prefer, to add a bit of dimension.  
* Finally add some bling to further emphasis the flow and graceful pattern on the card.  I used the the Artistry Blooms Sequins.
