For my inspiration for this event I just had to use butterflies and Shery has so many awesome butterfly products in her store.

I worked with these products;

and this is what I got up to; I added a little kitsch flamingo distress to my card and the placed then stencil (mask)
I added more oxide ink until I was happy with the blend and then stitched around the edge with my sewing machine
I stamped the sentiment in place and stamped the smaller Trendy butterflies onto some inky mop up card and cut them out. 
Then it was time to put everything together. 

Here is my finished card;

with a couple of close ups;

and one final shot.
