Inspired by a song

Has it ever happened to you that one song was stuck in your head and you couldn't get it out? I'm having one of those days again. Yesterday evening I heard Snow Patrol's Run again after quite some time (gosh, how I like this song!) and it's been stuch in my head ever since. I have been listening to it most of the time today. If you don't know this song, here's the video of it.

This song was also inspiration for my today's card. I'm very happy with result. It actually turned out way better than I expected. Maybe I should listen to this (or another Snow Patrol's song) song more often. ;) Here is the card ...

As you can see, this card has a bit of vintage touch again. I really love making vintage cards. I just wish I could get my hands on one or two (or more lol) vintage stamps. But our craft stores have veeeeeery limited supply of stamps. *sigh* Anyways ... Back to the card ... I used 3 different DP - the one in the background is  from Scrapwork's Formal affair pack, the green one is from Provo Craft (I stamped over it with Faded text background stamps from Stampabilities) and the greenish flower paper is just a leftover I had in my stash, so no company name on that one, sorry. The corner stamps (see left side of the butterfly) is from Folia. I also did some embossing. See the brownish piece of paper in the back (behind the flower)? This is actually a piece of envelope which I got in the mail a couple of days ago. I knew it was a good idea to recycle it. ;) I tore a piece of it, put it in the Craft Concepts' cottage floral embossing folder and went over some pieces with Tim Holtz's Brushed corduroy distress ink. The big (green) flower is from Prima and the small (yellow) one is from Papermania. The button is from my stash and so are the ribbons and lace. And as for the butterfly goes ... Well, I bought this pack of butterflies (there were 6 in a pack) about a month ago or so. You've probably already noticed that I love butterflies, so no wonderf I just "had to" buy it. ;) Now I'm only angry with myself because I didn't buy more back then (of course now they don't have anymore :S). They came in transparent plastic bag and there was no company name, so no idea about that. Of course I just had to add some sparkle to the card too. ;) I used diamond stickles (I LOVE this product!). Butterfly has already had the glitters on its wings, I just added some glitters to the flower, to the corner stamp and to the ribbon. In person this looks even better than in the picture.

If you have any question about the card just let me know. :)
