Life Is A Matter Of Moments

Good evening!
Oh my goodness...the weather is sooooo bad here tonight! It's a veritable hail storm, wind, thunder and lightening included!

It makes for a perfect crafting night though, so here is one of the cards I made this evening...not reflecting the weather at all!

I have used Papillon Pot Pourri and the matching Elegant Butterfly punch for this card. Are they just beautiful? They are my favourite SU! items by far! I gently furled the wings at the top for some definition and make them look like they're about to flutter off the card!
When I saw the sketch at Retro Sketches, I couldn't resist using these...they are perfect for it don't you think?

The sentiment is from the Elements Of Style stamp set...again, a gorgeous sentiment. I chose to match the word 'Life' with the green butterfly to kind of highlight that all the moments (pink butterflies) make life. 

Products used for this card
Cardstock - Whisper White, Crumb Cake
Stamps - Papillon Pot Pourri, Elements Of Style
Inks (markers) - Old Olive, Pretty In Pink, Regal Rose
Punch - Elegant Butterfly
