Butterfly Kisses!

What can I say about this card? I really started out wanting to do the Midnight Madness sketch challenge. It 'ain't gonna happen! I really don't like the sketch.. offense.. ..I just couldn't get a handle on it. I chose the butterfly stamp to use with the "Pulling Pastels" video that Gina K. did on Stamp TV. It really looked cool on the sample I did, but had a problem finding papers to use. I recently ran across this stack of papers that I bought eons ago. Why, I don't know. I'm really not crazy about it now. The purple ink pad was included with something I bought online. So after stamping the butterfly 3 times I felt committed to using it regardless of whether I liked the paper.

I think I'm going to have to start using my camera on my cards instead of scanning them. The sentiment is popped up and the punched butterfly now has a crumpled wing. Oh, well! I didn't have ribbon I could use on this card although I don't know where I would have used it.. .. well, yes I do, but without a bow.
Used my Nestabilities again! Discovered I already had the MS border punch I would have bought again if Michael's had it the other day. Sheesh! Also used her classic butterfly and frond punches. I used liquid pearls around the large scalloped circle. Just happened to have mellow yellow although it looks like gold in real life. Purple glitter glue on the stamped image and rhinestones for the flowers and punched butterflies.
Couldn't post this until after The Bachelorette tonight. I'm so glad she finally got rid of Wes. What a real jerk! I like all 3 of the remaining bachelors, but it still sounds like it's going to be a rocky road. I really don't know which one I would chose. Anyone else hooked?
Good night and sweet dreams.. ..{{{hugs}}}
