Lily Pad Cards' Patterned Paper Challenge #1

When I saw Lily Pad Cards' Patterned Paper Challenge (sponsored by Simon Says Stamp), I knew I had to get some cards made. Yes, I'm one of those that LOVES to buy patterned paper.....and then let it sit on the shelf!  Actually, one of the easiest and quickest way to make cards is to use patterned paper.  Anyway, here's my first card:
Here'a how I did it:
I stamped the butterfly twice on 2 different (but coordinating) sheets of 6X6" patterned paper. I then cut out one of each using the whole stamp, then one of each using just the inner sections. The inner section of one butterfly was then adhered over the inner section of the other butterfly for the contrast on the wings.  I then cut assorted shapes of the leftover cardstock and a couple strips of one other coordinating sheet of cardstock and adhered them all to an A2 base card of kraft cardstock. The butterflies were adhered with 3D foam stickers to give them some dimension. This was a VERY simple card!

Here's the supplies:

Thanks for looking!!
