CTMH Technique Challenge - My Stickease

Welcome to the Close to My Heart Technique Blog Hop.  We are a small hop so it will only take you a little while to see all of the dazzling artwork that this group of talented Consultants has put together.  The hopper in front of me is Tabbi Fritz.  This month's challenge is to use My Stickease or stickers in your artwork.  I have SO been waiting for this Challenge Blog Hop!  I have been saving the most gorgeous butterfly found on the Claire Complements for this artwork.  And here is my card:

I cut the Sunset cardstock into a heart shape using the Cricut Artiste cartridge, pg 51.  Using the same shape, the smaller heart was cut out of Colonial White cardstock.  With Outdoor Denim ink, I second generation stamped the sentiment, "A butterfly goes wherever it pleases and it pleases wherever it goes." from the stamp set, Bugs & Hugs (D1535) onto the Colonial White heart.  Then I placed the Claire Complements butterfly over the Colonial White heart.

I found a scrap of chevron patterned paper from the Claire paper pack and placed it at the bottom of the card and then adhered a piece of the zip strip above the patterned paper.  The Friendship sentiment is also from the Claire Complements.  I never realized how much I love these colors together.  So vibrant and fresh!  The "F" is also from the Claire Complements.  I added the little Artisan Studs on the left bottom corner when I saw that I was actually following the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:

Isn't that funny?  I will be linking this card up to their Freshly Made Sketch #81.  

I am trying to decorate the inside of my cards when I make them as well instead of waiting until I want to send the card out.  The sentiment comes from Card Chatter - Sympathy (D1476).
