New releases at Digistamps4Joy - "See-through Lady"

This is my second card to show off a new release at Digistamps4Joy. I used another one of the FIVE new butterflies that I drew. This one is called "See-through Lady". I saw one of these amazing creatures fluttering past my nose when I visited the Butterfly Farm in Pietermaritzburg in November 2012, and just fell in love with her!

I initially contemplated cutting out the see-through parts of the wings, but decided against it as some of the veins are just too thin to cut around, so added lots of crystal Stickles glitter glue instead. It produced the see-through effect I wanted, so I'm happy. The butterfly was coloured with SN pens, and I added white gel pen hand-drawn flowers and dots. The background butterfly paper was diecut with an arch shape and then pasted on top of the dark brown cardstock. The scalloped edge around the card was hand drawn (rather wobbly though!!).

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Allsorts - dies and punches
Card Makin Mamas - anything goes

Drunken stampers - all that glitters
Digihaven - sparkles and bling
