Recycled butterflies

I am sure most of you can relate - some cards come together more easily than others - this was one of the easier ones for me. I usually begin with a sketch.  Here, I added my newest pattern paper (from a grab bag).  I scissor-cut the scallops (part of the pattern), and used the plainer part of the paper for the bottom strip.  The  middle strip shows embossed Stylized flowers (Cuttlebug).  I used some of the washi tape I purchased a few weeks ago as well as metallic cord a friend gave me years ago.  The sentiment is Just Rite.  The butterflies are recycled card board - one of my favorite things for die cuts - that I hardly ever use LOL!  This is from a store brand Raisin Bran box - just the right color!  The striped cereal bowl was just right for the smaller butterfly.  The tricky part is to find a spot without too much lettering.  (My all time favorite would be the boxes containing Marie Callender pies - yummy to eat and nice colorful pictures!)  The sentiment is JustRite.
Bingo - line 2-  (free, embossing, die, flowers):
