Pinteresting!!

Happy Thursday everyone!!
Today's card is one that I have been thinking about ever since I saw the challenge topic for this week at Crafts 4 Eternity.  I have been mulling over the sentiment in my head but hadn't been able to figure out what details to add around it for the card...until today!
I saw a picture online while doing some browsing and the idea just stuck like glue and I knew exactly what I was going to make:
 The topic at Crafts 4 Eternity is Social Media...and right now what is more social than Pinterest???  Of course, my inspiration came from this card I saw while doing my daily browse of the crafts on that very site:
While I didn't follow too many of the same details, what really caught my eye was the vellum window with the butterflies.  I was kind of scared doing the string and everything because I've never tried to do anything like that before, but I think it turned out okay on my first try.  There are a lot of things I learned while making this card, and I think I am going to try and remake it using some of my new found knowledge...like don't put double sided tape on an edge that will be exposed...
I'd like to add a frame around the window like the example as well...I just forgot when making my original.
The card shape and the window frame are cut from my Cricut Lacy Labels cartridge.  The butterfly is cut from the Create-a-Critter cartridge and I added glitter to her wings.
The flowers are ones I had cut out quite awhile ago for a different project, and then never used them.  The colors were a perfect match for this card and they were the right size to fit on the string, so I added them!
I printed off my sentiment and added it to a Lacy Label and then put some paint dots and glitter around the edge.  Made up a couple of paint dot pins to go along with my "pin"terest theme and stuck them behind a flower/bow.
So cute!
