ATCAS - Challenge #8

This week our challenge is hosted by Florence!
Florence has chosen an AWESOME code word for you which is
And this to me was a no-brainer! Butterflies!
And here is my DT card -
I created this one layer card using a technique that I had learned at my Online Card Classes - Partial Die Cutting. This is where the butterfly die (from Hero Arts) was placed in the middle of the card before folded and only cut through a partial part of the card. I did this for two butterflies. Then I stamped where the die had been cut and then randomly on the card.

I would be happy to try and put together a tutorial if anyone is interested. I love how the butterflies just pop off the card!
I have coloured the butterflies using Touch Twin Markers and then outlining them with a cool grey.
The sentiment is from my Whimsical Phrases set.
Our sponsor for this challenge is

Check out the other inspiration from the DT over at Addicted to CAS! We can't wait to see what you come up with.
