A Simple Greetings Card

Hi, I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend so far.  I have a quick simple card to share with you, using all things from the CTMH Pemberley Workkshop Kit. I created this card following the sketch this week at Repeat Impressions.
I just love the colors and papers in this kit.  The intricate cut triangle on the left side is a cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge.  It did not have a shadow cut but using the Cricut Craft Room I made one by hiding all the cuts I did want cut, everything but the outside cut.  It took a couple minutes but it was worth it because it was the effect that I wanted.   I cut the intricate part using the CTMH Vanilla Cream cardstock and the background is Indian Corn blue (love this blue).  I placed a few pearls on the tips of the triangle to dress it up a bit.  The butterfly is Garden Wood Shapes they are small thin wooden shapes that can easily be colored.  This one I colored by just dabbing my Indian Corn blue ink pad on it, then added some pearls to the middle.  I cut the triangle on the right with some other papers that are in the lit and added the brads to the corners,
I stamped "greetings" using a stamp from the 4 My Friend stamp set, there is a great variety of sentiments in this set.
So I hope you like my card, it is simple but yet looks like it was a lot of work.

Challenges for this card.
