Sweet Sympathy Butterfly Card

This is my THIRD card this week. What has gotten into me? Hehehe, just am enjoying playing in my craft room too much! Maybe I better put this energy into my laundry....naw, I'd rather play with paper!  I wanted to finally try a sketch challenge (I have been chicken about this) and I found it made making decisions SO much easier!  So, I guess I will try more.  This sketch is from a Challenge at The Sweetest Thing - Sweet Sunday Sketch #154.  Here is my interpretation of it:



 My wonderful Cuttlebug was very useful for this card as I used two different folders-the Swiss Dots, and the little flowers that came with my bug.  Paper by  Cloud 9 (love the stripe); my own crinkle ribbon in Hint of Pesto and Versa Magic ink.  The Stripe ribbon and flat lace are from my odds and ends box, The beautiful butterfly is from K & Company.  This card is entered in the following challenges:
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Ch#160 - Lace and Scallops 
(There are scallops on the lace, Promise!)
 I am looking forward to Spring.  The weather has been in the 60's here this week and my little spring flowers are starting to bud.  Soon my daffodils will be up...Ahhh bring on Spring!
