Crafting with Dragonflies Card Challenge: Use a Butterfly

Hi all. It's so good to be back, and even though I have started back slowly, it feels good. No pressure.
I have decided to start up Crafting with Dragonflies again, and even with or without a DT, or with or without Sponsors and prizes....Awesome.....

So head on over there and play along...

Our first Challenge back, is a Card Challenge,. Make a card with a Butterfly or Butterflies...up to you. As long as you can see the Butterfly.

Card 1:

 On this card I have used offcuts and a scrap book page that hat a lace print on it, the butterflies are from Stampin their punches....and just added some bling and a piece of cardstock I found on the table that was already embossed. No idea where it came from, lol.

Card 2: 

This card was a bit of an experiment a did a while ago...Top left is  a lace 3d sticker, the butterfly was out of a packet with two other butterflies, and is also 3d the body has a magnet on the underside...I just added some glitz. Gotta have glitz and bling...
The background is actually the experiment. It is a piece of Water colour paper that I spritzed copious amounts of Glimmer mist onto....Love it..
I am also entering these cards into the following challenges:
