Butterfly Wishes

Hello! I decided to have another go at Nina's challenge. We were to use her card for inspiration, you can find more info on her blog Crafting in Croatia. This time I stuck more with her layout and color combo. These ribbon roses are so fun to make. You can find the tutorial here. I decided to use one of my crocheted butterflies instead of a punch or stamp. I love the soft and feminine feel of this card, I think I might have a hard time parting with this card! Does anyone else ever have that problem? I know it's really silly cause I can always make another one just like it but... anyway hope you like it. List of other challenges and supplies used is below. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

This is so beautiful, Janice! You are a pro at those roses! I tried her paper flower tutorial and they are cute. The paper ones stick up a wee bit higher than I like. Thanks for all the love you have been leaving over at the lake.
