Butterfly card

HI all
I have been messing about with my distress inks and scraps of white card i had lying around and made some pretty and subtle background papers.i used some of it to make this simple but pretty thank you card for a friend.i used my fave cheery lynn butterfly die,a spellbinders die for the rectangular topper,tumbled glass distress ink from TH and a free stamp from a craftstamper mag to  over stamp the subtle details on the papers...simple added a ribbon and a few gems from meiflower crafts.The edge punch is by martha stewart
