Butterfly Pin Card

I made this card using the Beautiful Butterflies Sizzix Bigz Die #114507 from the Stampin' Up! IB&C.  After using the Big Shot and cutting 2 of the largest butterfly I glued them together and then stamped it with Staz On Ink using the clear stamp set Elements of Style #120045.  I used Rose Red and Old Olive Markers and Blender pens to color in the Butterfly.  Then I used #107066 Color Spritzer Tool to fill in the blank spaces with just a little splattered look.  When I was done with the stamping, spritzing and sponging the edges I used Crystal Effects over it.  When it was dry, I waited til the next day.  I added a pin on the back so that I could wear it.  I attached it to this card a made so that you could give it as a card/gift and they would have the pin to wear once they saw the card.  

Here is a view of the inside of the card.  

 Here you can see how it is attached to the card.  I used a hole punch to punch the holes to attach it.

 Here is a close up of the butterfly. Sorry it's a little blurry, but it was the best my camera would do.  I hope to have a class on this card soon!!
