Thank you Butterfly

Evening! I hope you're having a lovely Easter Sunday! I've had a really lazy one, J is working, my family are on holiday and I've just sat in my comfies, watched CSI and made cards! :-) I've managed 3 so far, including this one, which is my least favourite, not sure what I don't like about it though so I can't really correct it! It's fine though so I thought I'd still share. I originally stamped out this butterfly for this card but the black looked too heavy and I went for pink, so I put it to use here. It's using this weeks Dynamic Duos colours, this fortnights Seize the Sketch and today a new Paper Players challenge went up of CAS with Washi tape - that's what the black polka dot strip on my card is, the gold line is drawn on. Thanks for stopping by!
Excuse the dreadful photo by the way, the light is pretty bad today!
