Addicted to CAS #85

Morning friends I'm back with another challenge announcement.
This time it's Addicted to CAS and little me is the host for this one!

Kylie our fun and fab leader is also the sponsor of this challenge, with a $15 gift 
certificate for our lucky winner. What better set to play with than the Birthday 
Butterfly set from Happy Little Stampers - my new dies just arrived in time!

I started out by heat embossing 3 butterflies with Ranger pearl EP then
a bit of inky blending in some of my favourite distress ink colours:
Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, 
Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn, before spritzing with some
water and perfect pearls to create a wonderful shimmery effect.

I die-cut the middle butterfly and layered it up on 3 other die-cuts for 
added dimension. Using a 'Hello' word die from Paper Smooches I've
inlaid that one into my card panel with the 'my friend' sentiment from the 
Butterfly Birthday set. To finish some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I'd like to add this one to the following Anything Goes challenges:
