Hi all, it's time for another challenge card.  I love butterflies and this is what I've come up with today.  I was aiming for a simple yet elegant look and I think this has turned out just beautiful. 

It was really easy to put together, I punched the butterfly and added some sparkly glitter to the top of the wings.  Then I got some cream card stock to mount my papers onto.  The papers are Papermania Signature, Chatsworth vintage collection, they have a linen texture, very swish.  I have plowed through my paper stacks and pulled out the ones I haven't used for a while, this was one of the stacks.  Where the papers come together I added some cream silk ribbon.  The sentiment is from one of my forever friends stamps.  I added 3 aqua gems to the butterfly to finish the look.  I think this card would also work nicely for some invitations....
