Wishing You a Beautiful Day! for Creative Inspirations Paint

Today is a very exciting day for me! It's my first day to post on the Creative Inspirations Paint blog as a design team member -- something I've dreamed about for a long time! I'm so excited about being on this team and having a chance to use these wonderful products! Let the fun begin!
Even though it's October, I'm still seeing butterflies. I live in NW Wisconsin, and they need to be migrating or building their cacoons, but instead, they seem to be enjoying our mild weather. They were the inspiration behind today's project.  I wanted to make something with fall colors, but using butterflies. 
I made a fun card to share today, and used Creative Inspirations Paint on the embellishments:

I cut this easel card out on my Silhouette, using a file from My Scrap Chick, found here.  The papers are from Close To My Heart, but are now retired (Stella paper pack). The sentiment is from Whimsical Designs stamp company.
Here's a close up of the embellishments:
The flower (from Close To My Heart) looked similar to this one before I painted it:

I painted the crocheted flower with fuchsia, Turquoise, and Sage Creative Inspirations Paint.  The button was white when I started, but I coated it with Mocha Latte Creative Inspirations Paint. I love how it brought out the texture in the button!
That beautiful beaded stick pin is from Pinque Peacock, and can be found here.
I'll leave you with another angle of the easel card, so you can see how the wings of the butterfly appear to be flying.
