Barb: Z fold card

While creating this card, I used a technique that was new to me. First, this card is a Z fold card. Not nearly as difficult as it sounds. This time I added chipboard. I stamped the butterfly on the white cardstock. Then I stamped part of it on a round chipboard. I added some glitter to the hearts on her wing, swiped the edges of the clipboard then positioned it on the butterfly. It adds some dimension. I hope that you can see this in the picture.
Recipe: DP and cardstock: JoAnn's
            Stamps: Basic Gray
            Punch: Fiskar
            Green ink: CTMH citrus leaf
I am so excited that this cards will work for three challenges:
Crafty Sentiments: Chipboard
Crafty Creations:  Winged things plus a z fold card
The pixie cottage: sketch plus a fancy fold. (I hope you can see the sketch. I turned it clockwise!)
