Butterfly card

I made this card for 3 different challenges.  The first challenge I made it for was for House of Cards and their challenge is a sketch and the theme is clean and simple.  I believe my card qualifies as it came together very quickly.  Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:  

The card base is embossed butterfly paper which I purchased a long time ago at one of my favourite Scrapbook stores, Pointer Scrapbooking.   I used to go there quite frequently on my lunch hours as it was within a short driving distance from work.  The lilac cardstock is from my stash and the design paper is from a 6 x 6 paper pad - Docrafts Papermania - Lucy Cromwell.  I love the papers in it and have used it before and will definitely be using it again.  The butterfly die is by Memory Box - Pippi Butterfly.  The butterfly circle die is by Tonic Studios.

I am also entering my card into the One Stop Craft Challenge which is to use pastel colours.  The other challenge I am entering my card into is Crafty Sentiment Designs which is to use punches or dies.

I am very pleased with this card and when I decide who to send it to, I will finish the inside with a sentiment or maybe just write a small note.

Thanks for stopping by!
