Funky Fairy Challenge 4 - Winged thingy!

Well, I have lost it all this week: mojo, my stazon, marbles, the plot and where did the week go? I want them all back!
Andrea set a great challenge this week: Create a papercrafted item incorporating a winged thingy, It could be a Funky Fairy, Butterfly, Angel, Cherub ( do cherubs have wings?) etc.... but it has to be the main focal point of the item.
I had one of those ideas that should have stayed in my head I think but I will share it anyway:
The whole card is using Pinkie Pops I used hearts for butterfly wings and cut the bottom of the lower heart to make the antennae and buttons with pink glaze for the body and decoration. The butterfly is mounted on an acetate strip folded so the butterfly hangs clear of the card and it moves beautifully but not happy with card overall. Too much pink?

However, while playing around with the Doodles for Daniel stamps I had another idea that one of the flowers could be cut to make a butterfly so I stamped and coloured on the reverse of this Papermania glittered vellum and cut out the flowers so that the middle was attached to one petal and I turned these round and remounted them with wire and sequin antennae. Used different Pinkie Pops for backing and embellishments and made these two cards. Will be good for girls' birthdays.

I want my mojo back! :(
