Thinking of you Black Currant paper

Oh I just fell in love with this paper as soon as I seen it.  Actually we were in Joann's one day and my husband found this stack and said "Hey what about this one" and I said OMG yes!  He is real good at helping me find paper. :)
So I made this card using a couple of the papers in the stack.   I actually made this card to send as an entry into the 2010 World Card Making Contest.  Sure hope I win, the prize is over $600 worth of crafting products.

Using my Gypsy I made the frame for the inside of the card by placing a square from George the size of the card and then placing a rounded corner square in the center so that I would have the rounded cut out for the front of the card and not waste either piece.  I should have thought of this years ago, LOL.  The card itself is 6.5" x 5".  The "Thinking of You" is a Stampin Up stamp from the Elegant Greetings set that I bought years ago. 

Now I have seen several people us Terrifically Tacky tape to put a line of glitter on a card but always forgot to do it, but this time I tried it and it came out great and was so easy to do.  I was worried about not getting it straight but it came out pretty good, I used Martha Stewart glitter.  Also below that pink strip is 4 small circles (they are about 1/3 of inch)I cut using my Cricut and then covered them with the same glitter.  They are not very easy to see in the photo.  The little butterfly I got at the fabric remnant store for $1.99 for a pack of 12.  This card is so so pretty in person with just enough shine to it.  Thanks for looking and as always any comments are appreciated.
And here is the inside, the flower is from George, good old George what would we do without it!
