Thank you card with a butterfly

Hi, there!
 Finished this card  for one of my friends and for Hero Arts January challenge 1st round.
 I've been playing with this butterfly cling stamp again, after I noticed the day before yesterday that the Hero Arts changed their challenges a little
- from former 'weekly' challenges to 'month-long' contests around the monthly theme. The details are on this page of their blog.

Here is my card.

And this is a closeup.

 This Design Blocks 'Wallpaper background' has been in my favorites since last spring, but probably, this would be the first time to use it for the card opened to the public, I think.
I did heat embossed with white powder, colored with Liquid Pearls and put the Diamond Glaze inside of the leaves' shapes. And added Dimensional Pearls for the flower centers.
 And I colored with opaque gold marker and put the Diamond Glaze for the dots in the butterfly image.

Stamp used:
HA Cling Stamp Butterflies (3 images) / CG130
HA Design Blocks Wallpaper background / S5166
HA Clear Design Thank You Sayings/ CL341

HA Kraft notecard
Ranger / Distress Inks, Perfect Pearls, Liquid & Dimensional Pearls,
Judikins / Diamond Glaze, opaque marker, ribbon, beads, wire etc.

Thanks for stopping by! :)
Have a beautiful week!
