Less is More week 8

This weeks challenge from Less is More is a sketch. A long narrow card.............I decided to do a DL, which I haven't done in ages. So it's good to have a change!
I recently bought a lovely download from "The clipart fairy" The butterfly is printed onto vellum, or in my case parchment, cut out and sprayed with adhesive then sprinkled with glamour dust. I've done a couple of layers and topped it off with three pearls.

I have knotted the ribbon behind the butterfly to make it stand off the card slightly.
The text is computer generated and is called Amienne

Your extra work really paid off on this lovely card. I think I will be using a butterfly on my LIM card as well.
Don't forget to take word verification off so the team leaders can get in/out of your blog quickly. You may not have realized it's even on.
