Facebook challenge card

The images on this card are free from Nikky at Polka Doodles if you are in her Facebook group. The challenge is to create a card with them by Sunday 29 Jan. I took the butterfly image into MCS and tiled it to make a border. I used an embossing folder for the background and the intention was to ink it to match the diamond paper from my snippet box - yeah - I was determined to get a snippet on a card this week. However, the ink pads were rather large and so it ended up a bit more inky than I had imagined. The sentiment is part of a stamp  from SU on a pedestal.
I didn't get as much time to craft today as I would have liked, unfortunately really had to do some housework!
I'd like to enter this card into
Snippet challenge 
Ooh La La - seeing double
