Butterfly thank you

This card is for SCS Sketch Challenge #217. Fun sketch! But I say that about all of 'em, don't I, LOL? It will also qualify for Stamp Simply's Challenge #74--signs of Spring.

My base card is Whisper White with layers of Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Pretty In Pink, and the new Tea Party DSP, all SU! The focal element is first more of the same with different DSP and is up on 3M foam squares. Then I added three 1" squares of PTI Solar White card stock that were cut/embossed with square Nestabilities dies and on which I added a punched out butterfly. The sentiment is from SU!'s Flight Of The Butterfly set and was stamped on PTI Solar White card stock with Basic Gray ink and cut/embossed with a Nestabilities ribbon slider die. One inch wide pink satin ribbon ties it on. Tiny flat-backed pearls create the butterflies' bodies and more pearls accent the base card and the sentiment tag.

Thanks for dropping in!
