SC217 Butterfly Friend

This card is for the Sketch Challenge on SCS this week! As soon as I saw the three squares, I knew I wanted to use this cuttlebug die that's been lurking in my draw for a while. I found out a friend of mine is having surgery on Tuesday, so this one is heading to her.
I started with a base of Close to Cocoa and layered it with white and then some pink bazzill. Then I added some of this pretty Melissa Frances paper across the bottom and stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up's Elegant Cheer set (not available in Australia yet). The top panel is a layer of white topped with a piece of Close to Cocoa that's been embossed with 'Stylized Flower' embossing folder. The squares were cut out of white with the cuttlebug 'Vintage' die set. The butterflies are made using the Martha Stewart Royal Butterfly punch and some pink bazzill with pink rhinestones for the body.
I really enjoyed this challenge and might have to make another card using the other square die in that set!!!
That's all for today, thanks for visiting!! :)
