On the wings of a butterfly

Yay, it's Friday already! Can you believe it? And I know I have a whole weekend of doing "nothing" (meaning nothing stressfull) in front of me. I'll have all the time to do some crafting. It doesn't get much better than this, does it? ;)

Today I want to show you a card I made for a friend of mine. She helped me with something and in return I got her some chocolates and I made this card.

She's a designer so I wanted my "thank you" card to be a bit different. As you can see I did a lot of stamping on this card. For my main image I chose the fab butterfly stamp from Close to my heart "Find your style" set. I absolutely love this image. Or I should beeter say - I love the whole set. lol So Rosie, if you are by any chance reading this, THANK YOU again for such a great surprise! In the background I stamped with Viva decor - My paper world: Flower embellishments clear stamps (the same stamps you can win in my candy!). The papers are from K&C. I made the flowers myself. The doily was originally white, but I colored it with TH Brushed corduroy distress ink (I also inked the edges with this ink). I wanted to add some bling on the butterfly - and I did this with diamond Stickles - I LOVE stickles. I made distressed edges with my scissors. I also used some ribbon and lace from my stash.

So, what do you think of this card?
