Beautiful Butterfly FMS177

Some of the paper in Sweet Dreams DSP is geometric and almost manly, which is the direction I tried to head with this card.
Oh, whoops! There was a Bermuda Bay butterfly sitting on my craft table, and it took over and this is what I ended up with.

I opened up my silver Metallic Encore ink to stamp the smaller butterfly  in Butterfly Basics. I love that lacy floral pattern and have used gold for it heaps but the grey shades called for silver.
A sentiment from Balloon Bash seemed perfect for the banner.

This would have to be one of the quickest cards I've ever made. I guess it was because such a lot was all ready, the butterfly was the only thing to stamp and it and the banner had to be cut. Who says a quick card isn't a good card?

Thanks heaps to Freshly Made Sketches for the great sketches they supply us with for inspiration every week. I do like to play along!
