Butterfly snippets

Well after a couple of manic days working away, I got two days off. But yesterday was manic at home too! However, today, I made it to the craft room - yipee! I was waiting in today for my new freezer to be delivered  between 7 and 2. Luckily for me they came at 7.15am so I didn't have the day bobbing up and down making sure I didn't miss them (as you do!).
Onto the card.... I've had the centre butterfly sitting on my desk for a while left over from some paper I printed from a Debbi Moore CD rom and cut out with a spellbinder die. So I went from there, going in the snippet box to find the background SU paper and embossing and inking, and then using a mask from clever cut to emboss and cut out the larger butterfly from a piece of coredinations cardstock in the snippet box, embossed with SU manhattan flower folder. I then sanded it back and applied a sliver gleam to the embossed flowers. Finally the cardstock is stamped with a creative expressions rose background stamp.
I'd like to enter this card into the playground at Pixie's crafty snippets #63 and into the challenge at Cute Card Thursday - anything goes.
