Lawnscaping Challenge #84 - Stars and/or Stripes

Hi there!  It's time for another Lawnscaping Challenge!
Challenge #84 is all about stars and/or stripes!

We are sponsored this week by the super fabulous Lawn Fawn!

For my card, I used some of the striped paper from the Let's Polka 6x6 paper pad and one of my new favorites, Louie's ABCs dies! Goodness, I LOVE these dies!  I pulled out my Flutter by stamp set, and stamped the one-winged butterfly twice, once perched on top of the alpha diecut, and once on a piece of scrap card stock.  I colored the wings the same, and then cut out one wing and popped it up on a slight angle  on top of the other butterfly, giving the butterfly two wings.  

Butterfly Hi

You can see here how much dimension that gives, and with a few sequins, a splash of glitter pen and some coral twine, it's really finished off.
