AAA cards challenge #98, with video

This fortnight the theme at AAA cards challenges is: creatures great or small.

Our sponsor for this challenge: Happy Little stampers. and you could win a $20 gift certificate

For my card I used the butterfly beauty stamp set from Concord & 9th.
It's already intricate when you stamp it in one color, but I chose to use two Memento inks: Love letter and Dandelion and for the other Teal zeal and Licac posies.

I think it makes the butterflies more interesting.
The sentiment is from the same set and i stamped it, as well as the body, with Versafine onyx black ink.

Some generic brand rhinestones and enamel dots to add some sparkle.

For the one sin the video I used Memento Angel pink and Rose bud.

For the embossed one I used Wow! embossing powders taffeta pinks, florida sunset and black twinkle.
