MOJO Monday Butterflies card

Hello Crafters!

Well, I did it.  I cut Ken Oliver's beautiful papers that I received at CHA.  It was a tough decision as I only have the one pad but I was careful: measured thrice and cut once.  But you have to understand why I was so careful...just look at those butterflies!
The card layout started out following the newest sketch at MOJO Monday:
I followed the sketch then added lace under the butterflies and the luscious lace and double satin bow to the left side of the card.  I die cut two scalloped tags- one from corrugated board and one from Ken Oliver's paper.  Quietfire's "Butterfly" was heat embossed in gold.  
The entire edge of the patterned card base was also heat embossed in gold.  Consider this card gilded!
The inside has Quietfire's "If nothing ever changed" stamped in black and a strip of Ken's paper adhered as shown.
Here is the outside again.  Goodness, I love the colors of the papers with the gold and black.
Hope you like the card!  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
