Butterfly and buttons card

Here is a card I made using some patterned paper from DCWV for the topper of the card. I used a strip of white card stock for the rectangular piece and the circles. I colored the rectangular strip with tumbled glass and broken china distress inks. Then I sprayed it with the perfect pearls/water mixture using a mini mister. I adhered three heart buttons with embroidery floss tied on to the rectangular strip. Then I cut two circles with my cricut using the plantin schoolbook cartridge. I cut one circle 2 1/2" and one circle 2 1/4". I colored the 2 1/2 circle with broken china distress ink and I colored the 2 1/4" circle with tumbled glass distress ink. I adhered the two circles together and adhered to the rectangle with some scotch foam tape. I stamped a flower from the Color Me Flowers Hero Art set and also a butterfly from the Hero Arts antique engravings set. I colored them both and put some white gel pen highlights on both. I cut them out and adhered them to the circles. I had to draw the antennas for the butterfly with a fine tip black pen.

I am entering this card in the challenges at:
