Hello Classy Friends, Diane here with you today with my card for 
this weeks challenge to use "Rub Ons or Stickers"

Beverly has a wonderful supply of both the outline sticker sheets and rub ons
I chose an outline sticker for my card called "Daffodils - Various in gold
These are also available in a silver outline if you prefer.
I have really grown a fondness for these stickers and find them very easy to use
and when finished they are stunning.

 For my outline stickers I peeled them off 
(and a little hint, they are a bit static-y so if you slightly
wet them with your finger ...very slightly...they will relax and stick on perfectly)....
I stuck mine on a piece of Scor-Tape Sheet (this is like scor-tape but comes in a sheet)
then covered it with micro-fine warm white glitter.....
Once I was satisfied I had the glitter down good, 
I colored on top with permanent markers
then I peeled it off and stuck it onto white card stock and hand cut around it.

I set these aside and cut an A2 size card from
Banana Split Pop Tone 100# card stock...
I covered the front of my card with paper from Prima "Zephyr"  6x6 paper stack
I used a 1 3/4" round punch and punched two circles from the front of my card....

Using Joy! Crafts Foam pads small, I "popped" up my finished sticker pieces......
Stamping my sentiment on one of the left over circle pieces, I mounted it onto my card....
The card was finished with 2 layered butterflies from "Butterfly Trio", cut in leftover
pieces from my card front and a scrap of velum and a scrap of black

I have always loved those outline stickers and asked about them at our local craft store recently. Love how you colored over the glitter. Still have never tried that. Your floral papers are so pretty in my favorite color, and the layered butterflies are a knockout. Divine!

The contrasting butterfly is very effective. This is so creative, especially the yellow color combo and layout. Thank you for sharing with us at Word Art Wednesday.
