ATC Swap, part 1

So I participated in my first ATC (Artist Trading Card) Swap!
It was through ScrapbookSteals and we had 16 participants!
The thought of doing 16 of the same thing hurt.
I have a small attention span and little patience!
So I came up with 2 ideas and did 8 of each. Still, a bit much, but better than 16 : )

Here is the first bunch:

First I disressed and inked all the edges. Then misted every card with a Glimmer Mist.
 I used the beautiful stamp from Unity called Untamed Beauty.
{I'm linking up to their Friends with Flair post!}
And colored in every. single. petal. Whew. Had to break that up in to several days' work.
 I added some glitter glue and an embossed butterfly.

And then I heat embossed the sentiment with some metallic copper Zing.

I'll post the second set later. Must clean house now and get lots done!

I'm so excited to get my set of cards for the trade.
