Celebrate Butterfly

Good Morning! Actually its 3:00am here. I have no idea why I can't sleep but I strongly suspect its because my husband is sick and is coughing and hacking in my bed. I am the only one who has avoided the illness but I can't help thinking I am going to be next. Anyhow... on to today's card. Its pretty simple. I stamped a large flourish from PTI's Fancy Flourishes in Fresh Snow ink on raspberry fizz cardstock. Next I stamped and die cut a butterfly from Butterfly Dreams on some PTI vellum. I added a little row of Amuse bling. I adhered a scrap of die cut Raspberry Fizz bitty dot paper and accented the scallops with bling. Finally I stamped the celebrate sentiment from Fillable Frame 5 in fresh snow. It was not dark enough (or white enough...) so I carefully traced it with my uniball white pen.
