Butterfly wings

I seem to have a bit of a text thing going on at the moment! The stamp I have used here I also used on these cards had it so long and now it has appeared twice! I stamped the text on a scrap of white card in lilac and then used a nestie label to cut out, brushing the edges with my ink duster. I punched two butterflies from scraps using a MS punch, added a PTI sentiment. I dipped the larger butterfly into clear embossing powder so it has a glossy look but you can't see it in the photo! Result CAS!
This is my second card for Pixies's Crafty Snippet challenge #19 as the playground is open for two weeks this time. There has been some crying behind the bike sheds, led by me and my weaving annoyance on Monday and then Di herself at not being able to get her Moroccan dies from the paper and finally Mrs A who wanted to spend her pennies in the Craft Tuck Shop, but they didn't have any of the things she needed (wanted?).
I'd also like to enter this card into these challenges:-
CES Challenge - anything goes - and the last challenge how sad.
Polka Doodles - mono shades
Oldie But a Goodie - die cuts and punches
Crafts and Me - Punches and die cuts
Anything goes - things with wings

Great butterflies on this card. Has the craft tuck shop been replemished yet. I'm fit to bust other wise and I don 't want detention. It's lonely in the playground onece the gates are shut and I'm flippin fed up wiping those darn swing seats dry.
