Celebrate with butterflies

Hey all! Happy Monday morning. (?) I'm trying to get a couple cards entered for the last minute....again. ;)  This card is for CTD205.


and the inspiration:

It's hard to see, but the butterflies in the inspiration photo are all sitting on white icing flowers, so that's what I went with. When I stamped the flowers, I got a little smudge of black on the card. DOH! So, since there are no accidents in our crafty world, I hid it with that little tag and threw in some ribbon and twine also! It wasn't planned that way, but I really like how it came out! I used a butterfly punch from Martha Stewart and punched them from scrap paper. They are adhered using Helmar 450 glue. (Love this stuff! It's like using hot glue without the fear of burning your fingers! And it's fast drying!)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

Oh my gosh-I LOVE this card! Love the black and white of the background with the splashes of color from the butterflies. So amazingly cute.
