For Evelyn's 85th - shiny Spring butterflies

A friend from church is celebrating her birthday this week end, and I hope I have made a special card for such a special occasion.  For the YNS sketch I flipped and rotated the elements, but I think it is true enough to the original. The die cut is Floral Panel by Tattered Lace; the butterfly embossing by Darice; Swiss Dots by Cuttlebug, and there is a bit from the Embossibilities birthday folder.  The butterfly is part of a favorite SU set, Ageless Adornment.  To get the color I wanted I mixed 3 of Twinkling H20 blues.  The cream cs is Recollections champagne shimmer, and the blue is from a DCWV metallic pad (part of my long term stash!!)
