Flitter sparkly butterfly

Morning all, well the clear blue skies of 3 hours ago are well gone and we now have a mostly white cloudy sky with little hints of blue, but it can always change again and it could be worse it could be raining or even snow!

My first card to post today was a quick make only as I already had all the bits sorted and just had to put it together. The butterfly is a stamp I had made as I couldn't find a big butterfly that I liked, I'm sure there is probably one out there but I obviously didn't look in the right places. I had this idea see that it would look great on acetate and covered in glitter, and I think I was right. I have another one done too in purples blues and greens but I'll save that one for another day and card. I quite like the time consuming glitterart of making the butterflies I find it quite theraputic and quite rewarding alot like colouring in.

The card is quite clean and simple if you don't count the time of making the butterfly and I don't think it needs much as the butterfly deserves to be centre of attention, hope you think so too.
I am entering this into a couple or so challenges if I can find them all on my bits of paper , so excuse me if I find one later and add it after I've published the post please.

The challenges are;-

Stampavie and more- butterflies
Our creative corner-butterflies
KLstampin n scrappin-bling it on ( my butterfly is just pure bling and I've not used embellishments hope its still ok )
One stop craft challenge- things with wings
Daring cardmakers-flaps that lift
