Happy Butterfly Card

Hi everyone :-D

Today I want to share with you this Happy Butterfly Card

For my card layout I used beautiful sketch 191 from Sweet Sunday Sketch.

I used gorgeous Sizix 'Flights of Fancy' digital paper,  I got for free as a subscriber to a newsletter, and lovely  2 Cute Ink digital stamp 'Butterfly Doodle' I got for free this month, as a subscriber to a 2 Cute Ink newsletter

Image is paper pieced
I printed two images on a white cardstock paper and one on a white paper (160 grams). I colored pieces I needed with my colored pencils, fussy cut pieces, colored edges with black permanent pen and glued all pieces together. I added a bit of transparent varnish on a bow to create glossy accents.
Here is a photo of all pieces I used.

At the end I embellished the card with faux enamel dots from paper. This was something I was experimenting with last night and it came out pretty good. :-D

Here is how I made my faux enamel dots from paper (step by step tutorial):
I punched out circles from design paper leftovers. 
I placed paper circles on baking paper. 
I covered circles with thick coat of glossy transparent varnish to create dimension. 
I left them dry over night.

Card dimensions are 105 mm x 148 mm (4 1/8" x 5 7/8").

4) As You Like It Challenge, Favourite Type of Stamp - Digi or Rubber (and Why)? 
I love both, digital and rubber stamps. As a relatively new stamper and being unemployed long long time, I don´t have a lot of rubber stamps. With a really low monthly budget I can spend on crafting supplies (sometimes none), and enormously high price of rubber stamps here in my country (buuu), I prefer digital stamps. Also, digital stamps can be resized and rotated, so I have much more possibilities than with rubber stamps. :-D
