Supplies:  Gingham&Co stamp set - Waltzingmouse Stamps, 
Enjoy the ride sentiment - PTI, Magenta Hue - Ranger 
Archival ink, Anita's kraft card blank, upper 
crest border punch - Fiskars, machine stitching, raspberry 
fizz button - PTI, embroidery floss, butterfly die - PTI, 
Stamp press - Fiskars, Quickutz Polka dot embossing folder 
and white acrylic paint/toothbrush.

This week's challenge on Paperplay is one that I haven't taken part in before it's BINGO!
Metal charm
Faux or real stitching
Inks/ink pads
 I used the stamping/stitching/ink pad selection (but added button/paint for good measure!).
 I decided I wanted to get messy with some white acrylic paint after I had stamped the card and had it nearly assembled.  Used an old toobrush to "spray" the paint in a random pattern.  Then adhered the butterfly using a glue dot and some glossy accents. 

For the butterfly I ran my die through using an offcut of some stamped patterned paper created with the larger gingham stamp, it meant I had reverse stamping on my butterfly wing! (happy accident - smiles!)

What a brilliant card - and a fun challenge! You have such great depth here with the layers and the offset. A happy mistake, indeed. Love the paint - bet you had a bit of a mess on your hands, but well worth it. Thanks for sharing and gave a great St. Paddy's Day.
