Polkadot butterfly

Today's card is CAS and small- sometimes I just need to have small cards that I can pop onto a gift, which was my motivation for this small 4x4 card.  I started out with the color palette from the Jaded Blossom monthly challenge- that's how I got my brown card base, teal background paper, and red color for the butterfly (also, my awesome JB "Happy Birthday" stamp from the Puppy Love set!)

I also wanted to include this card in the CAS-ual Friday's Tic Tac Toe challenge, so I chose the column of "polka dots/ square card/birthday."  If you know me, you know that I can't resist polka dots, so that was a no brainer!  When I saw the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to have something with wings is when the card finally came together.  Butterflies are super cute and can be pretty simple to put together, which is a plus when you're planning on making a bunch of a card.  I found this butterfly on the Baby Steps cartridge and only used the base layer and the body, and then drew a little face on with gel pens.  The butterfly was cut at 2 1/4 inches.
I seriously can't wait to have natural light to take my pictures in again!
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
CAS-ual Fridays- Tic Tac Toe                                                                                        
Jaded Blossom- Color Challenge
