For my card, I am using this lovely butterfly from the Just Butterflies set, along with the Just a Note sentiment:


At first, I contemplated printing on vellum and coloring the different sections from behind, but I wasn't sure if the ink would really ever dry, so I opted for printing on regular 'ole white paper.  I sized and cut my butterfly with a white outline using my Silhouette Cameo.  The pale yellow panel was designed with a larger butterfly-shaped opening to allow the black card base to show around the main butterfly.  The sentiment was also printed on this panel.  The rainbow colors on this butterfly fit the design of it just perfectly IMO, especially with the addition of pink.  I had to add some pizzazz to this pretty simple design, so I used Star Dust Stickles to go over each section, doing my best to maintain the black lines in between.  The butterfly is glued down to the card base only behind the body and antennae.  Here are a couple of pics that will show the dimension:



And here are a couple more to maybe show some different views of all the shine from the glitter, LOL:
