This is so not the card I started out to make which was going to be Sea Green card stock with a lovely paper by Raspberry Road  with a fern on it. It somehow changed (as butterflies do) into this and I have to say I rather like the result.
Digi paper by Rasperberry Road. 'Antebellum 015'
Stamp by  Crafty Individuals CI - 012
Butterfly die cut by Cheery Lynn DL 113AB
Lace, ribbon, thread and pearls from my stash
The heart bottom right is made with the spare antenna!

The discarded items.

Aha Mrs. A! There I was going back and reading all of your little bits and pieces you've done since my last visit and up pops a new entry! How lucky am I?! The colors are gorgeous and is that fabric on which these lovely words sit? LOVE that butterfly! Your cards are so lovely and I absolutely adore coffee time reading your stories - they put the biggest grin on my face. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog; it's always a pleasure. I'm sorry I haven't been good at keeping up with you. I need to put it in my calendar to remind me to check on you so that I don't miss the fun! I saw one of your cards (the tiled one with your art!) and made a note to make one - great idea! I did the tile before but never used the glossy yours looks so much more artsy fartsy but then you did the painting!! I'll be using pretty paper as I can't paint!! Hope you are having a fabulous weekend dear friend!! {{HUGS!!}}

Before you pour that drink make sure you file away that pretty green

Your card is did emerge into something new...just like your pretty butterfly.
