Sweet Dreamers' Challenge: Cute as a Bug

Hi friends,
Today I have a card I created for the Sweet Dreamers' Challenge this week. Our task was to create a card with a bug on it- and I chose one of my favorite critters- the butterfly. Here are the deets to my card:
I embossed the Crushed Curry CS in the Victorian CB embossing folder. Sprayed the white CS with Tattered Angels Irridescent Gold Spray (I know so hard to capture that in the pic, but it gives it a soft , subtle shimmer), & stamped the flourish in black. (I wish I would have heat embossed it though :( I think it would have looked awesome.) I added black brads to each corner, stamped the sentiment in Dusty Durango. I added the ribbon to the side, cut out my butterfly from BasicGrey Pattern Paper & added a button on top. Not a difficult card at all, but I like, I like :) I'm a bold colors kind of girl so these SU! colors don't scare me. But clowns--> now, they SCARE me!!!
