EBTK Challenge (Sketch #23)

This sketch (from EBTKS Challenge #23)  looks simple enough, right? Well,  it took me a long time to figure out what I WANT to do with it. So after many trials and color-matching, a few twists and turns.....this is the outcome.
Thanks so much
I have been saving those delicate ribbons (given to me by my sweet friend Karen P.) for the longest time, this card seems to have a place for it. I purposely didn't want to add dimensions to the butterflies. I like how they are just "sitting" lightly over the background.
 I just got this EK Success border punch from Michael's (YAY for 50% off !!). There were SO many to choose from, but I picked this one--it's wavy and delicate-looking! Love it when I have new "toys"! Thanks so much for stopping by. I'm working on a "yummy" post for this coming Tuesday....you do not want to miss that one!
