Best of.... Butterflies (just one more) and TUTORIAL!

I saw a card like this on Pinterest and I had to give it a try!  It features "retired" paper however you could use any Desginer Series Paper to make this card!  I also featured the stamps from the first month of My Paper Pumpkin (our new program where you receive monthly projects in the mail for $19.95 a month!)  It's awesome - join here!  
Directions for this card are following the picture!
Steps to make this striking card:
1.  Adhere a strip of Designer Series Paper (Sunshine and Sprikles would be CUTE!).
2.  Stamp the "mis-matched dots" how you like - I stamped them twice.  I used Pool Party ink.
3.  Stamp "Hey there friend" in Island Indigo ink.
4.  Using MARKERS, "color" your stamp.  I used a random pattern and tried to use "lightest to darkest" so my inks didn't mix on my marker tip.  
5.  Huff on the inked up stamp (kinda like you did when you were a kid and trying to huff on a cold window).  
6.  Stamp onto a separate piece of cardstock.
7.  Fussy cut the butterfly (oh, which is from the "Best of Butterflies" set.
8.  Scribble glue from a 2-way glue pen onto the butterfly.
9.  Dump glitter onto glue - shake off excess.
10.  Using a dimension, adhere butterfly to the card.  Viola!  You are done!
