Kim has a great sketch for us at Just Add Ink this week.

It wasn't until I had finished my card that I realised just how many butterfly cards I've been sharing lately!  I hope you haven't tired of them.  Stampin' Up! has so many great butterfly options, I just can't help myself.

I wanted to make a fairly simple, but elegant, card for a friend's milestone birthday.  Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper provided the perfect background.  Don't you just love this lacy print?

The stitched circle die cut is using now-retired Brushed Gold cardstock (and a non-SU! die).  All other products are current, and are listed below.  If you live in Australia, and would like to order the products from me, you can click on any of the thumbnail images to be directed to my online store.

Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team's creations.  We hope to inspire you to play along with this sketch challenge.
