Best Wishes Butterflies

I usually don't know where I'm headed with a card when I start.  Sometimes I start with a stamped image, sometimes I start with a certain piece of paper, sometimes with a partially finished item from my "card parts" box, etc.

Today's card started with the die cut piece.  It is from the same Cuttlebug die set that I used a few days ago, so it was sitting on my table.  I ran it through my Xyron and stuck it to the card front.  Then I decided to add the pearls to the centers of the squares.  I had taken the Take Three stamp set (from Stampin' Up!) a few days ago to remind me to use it.  So, I used it on this card:)  I colored the butterflies with a Taken With Teal marker and the lines and sentiment with Basic Black.  That's it.  So simple.  I think I'll link it to Danni's Flutter By Wednesday, since it's Wednesday and there are butterflies on it! :)

Edited to add:  Thanks for the comment, Robin!  The card also qualifies for the Creative Belli Blog challenge to use a butterfly or dragonfly.

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
