Pretty butterfly card

Hi, today I have a card to share with you that I made following
the sketch this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  Although
I have not done them for quite some time I do love following
a sketch to create a card.

I love the soft colors and how this turned out.
I made the background paper after watching a video
on You Tube from Deanna Paper Crafts.
The butterfly is a Stampin Up stamp that I stamped on watercolor paper and then colored using my Distress Ink pads.
I cut the lacy circle using my Explore and the Sophie cartridge.
This is also one of the sketches for the current challenge going on
at the CraftingCircle message board.  Got till the end
of the month so come on over and play along
