Fiddlesticks butterfly card

  My basket that I store my 6x6 paper pads in is overflowing...and I just purchased three NEW 6x6 pads last week from Shop Pumpkin Spice.  How can I resist?  I can make a gazillion cards from a single 6x6 pad, and they are only $4.19 each.

  I need to get organized in my crafting.  So many times I am under the gun to create a last minute card or gift.  Time to work ahead a bit!  My mom's birthday is coming up and she loves butterflies.  I perused my newest 6x6 pads and I think this My Mind's Eye "Fiddlesticks" will work well for her.  I also pulled out all of my My Mind's Eye glazed brads from various collections to coordinate with the Fiddlesticks paper.

  I took some liberties with this July 2011
  I originally planned to put the sentiment in the bottom left, then decided I liked it on the top right and I moved the horizontal layer (crinkle ribbon) up a bit...

I am entering my card in the current challenge at Shopping Our Stash:  Sketch It!
(Use any sketch, show the sketch in your post, and explain how you used it.)

Supplies:
paper:  My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline "Fiddlesticks"
brads:  My Mind's Eye Lost and Found 2 Blush "Beautiful Girl" & Indie Chic Citron "Grow"
crinkle ribbon:  ballet slippers
butterflies:  Cricut cartridge "Wall Decor and More"
eyelet:  Making Memories

you say, "took liberties" i say, "added your own awesome and personal creative twist!" poTAYtoe, poTAHtoe, eh?! :) i love what you've done with this, and i especially love the little embellies you've used for each butterfly's "body" they are all BALANCED without being the same or symmetrical, and that is completely AWESOME!!!! ♥♥♥

June - This is a great card! You used your artistic license! Love it! I've seen pearls on the butterfly bodies before, but I really love how you used the 2 other embellies on the other 2 butterflies. And great paper! MME has great DP! Thanks for joining us this week at SOS.
Blessings,
Michelle
