#30DayCardChallenge - Day 1

Hello, Hello everyone!!

I am participating in a 30 Day Card Challenge! I'm so excited to challenge myself with this. It's been quite awhile since I've created cards consistently!
Here's my first card for the challenge.
I'm using the stamp set Butterfly Gala, with the coordinating punch.
I'm starting with Highland Heather (Purple) Cardstock, cut at 8 1/2x5 1/2; Basic Black Cardstock, Cut at 5 1/4x4; Whisper White Cardstock, cut at 5x3 3/4; Scraps of assorted cardstock ...
The first thing I did was punch out butterflies with the butterfly punch. I'm only using the larger butterfly for this card, so I'll save the small ones for another project …
Using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I stamped the butterfly body on each of the butterflies and the sentiment on the Whisper White Cardstock layer …
I arranged the butterflies where I wanted them, then using the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink I stamped the antennae in position.
Using foam dimensionals, I attached each of the butterflies …
Now, you can attach it to the Basic Black layer and attach that to the card base and be done …
But, if you have the coordinating inks and would like to add more, you can stamp the small butterflies randomly …
When I was stamping the small butterfly bodies and antennae, I realized I made a smudge under the blue butterfly! So instead of just starting over, I stamped another butterfly so it's not so noticeable …
To complete the card, attach the card front to the Basic Black layer …
Then, attach that to the card base (I know it's a little crooked, that's okay with me) …
 And that's it! That's the completed card! If you're interested in making this card, here's a list of all the supplies I used …
