JUST US GIRLS #342 - Word Week

Hi all and welcome! This week, Sharyn is your hostess for Word Week at JUST US GIRLS! She's picked the word BUTTERFLY for you to play along with. (I don't know about you Sharyn, but I think we may have a lot of entries this week! LOL!) Here is the card I made for this challenge:

 and here is the inside:

OMGee! I just about made a one layer card! (a very hard thing for me to do - I LOVE my layers!!) My itty bitty butterfly was die cut, stamped, colored and given a coating of Crystal Stickles for some sparkle. The sentiment on the front is computer generated, but stamped on the inside. I used silver ink for the swirl and added rhinestones for more sparkle. (Can never have enough sparkle!) Then I doodled around the edges to complete the card. 

I hope you get a chance to play along in our Word Week challenge! We'd love to see your butterfly creations in the gallery at Just Us Girls! We have a new Guest Designer starting today - Aileen Ryan! Welcome Aileen!  Ya'll need to see the card she made for this challenge - it's jaw-in-your-lap gorgeous! For even more inspiration, why not check out what my teammates have created for your viewing pleasure. You won't be disappointed!
