You Give Me Butterflies

Good Morning!

My apologies on this post being updated late.  We've had storms all night and my internet connection has been atrocious! Phew! Let's hope it stays up long enough, this time, for me to finish the post.

Today I have this cute new butterfly card to show you.  I love how this one turned out.  I used an image from Shelly's Images.  This is something new, for me.  I wanted to try a black and white card, with pops of color in the image.  I think it turned out beautiful! What do you think? I love butterflies and they always remind me of summer.

The papers are from my stash.  I used black pearls to accent two corner.  Sparkle and shine were added by using two think pieces of white glittery ribbon.  The black butterfly finishes it off with just the right touch.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
