Anniversary in teal and ivory

I always need several anniversary cards at this time of year.  This image from Kitchen Sink works well - at least I think it is not too fussy.  The DP is a piece from my stash, and I used a bit of it for the butterfly - which is mounted on a solid teal base - IRL a bit of it shows to help highlight the dainty creature.  As for the ribbon - I layered teal satin over sheer pale teal.  I tried tying the bow with the two still layered, but they seemed to have a mind of their own and separated as I made the bow - but I decided that looked fine and was much less work!  Not sure why I even attempted this as I am rather ribbon/bow challenged.
Polka dots: 
Ink - really the focal point:
