Happy Butterfly

Today's weekly sketch at SCS 223 is this http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=430854
Fun sketch, but it took me so long to come up with this card :)
I wanted to play with a color that I am not normally using, like Pink Passion! (this card by Angie Tieman inspired me http://schwooo.blogspot.com/2009/04/lauras-sketch-23-polka-dot-punches.html to use this color and use my new Beautiful Butterfly die somehow :)

I made my own patterned paper again with a piece of Pink Passion cardstock. Stamped polka dot punches in white then over stamped butterflies in Pink Passion. Layered with white eyelet borders. For the focal point, I stamped the sentiment and little flowers. Double matted it. Die cut the butterfly with my Big Shot machine. Stamped white polka dots on the butterfly. Topped it with button and linen thread. Tied ribbon and mounted the whole panel on dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you like it.
