Butterflies !

I love all of the butterfly stamps, papers, buttons, and other embellishments that are popular now!  I especially love these little lacey ones that you can get for almost nothing! They go on a card or layout so easily!  I always keep a stash of cards made up to send out "just because" and this is a version of one of my favorites.

It now incorporates all of the elements that I like. Lace, ribbon, buttons, bling... The two patterned papers are some old stash that I've had around, so I can't really say who's it is. 
And because this card is being entered in the Flourishes and Paperplay challenges, I need to explain that the large rhinestone "bling" on the flower is indeed a button. It is an old vintage one that I cut from an old garment and saved. I included a picture so that you can see the back of the metal button.  Cool, eh?  They don't make buttons like this anymore! 

Wish I had a hundred more! 

Challenges entered:
(Include a button, lace, and ribbon)

Have a great rest of the weekend!
