Blue butterfly

Yesterday I used the negative of the butterfly I die-cut as a stencil. Today I wanted to use the butterfly itself. I don't use butterflies that much on my cards but I always think they look pretty on other peoples cards. But after this card I think I will use them a bit more :-) i need to use all the stuff I have more insteed of buying new things. But it's hard, there are always so many new pretty things turning up that you believe you got to have, isn't it?
Well... This card is made only from "old" things. I used maskning tape to pick up the colour and transfering it to my paper. I used there colours of blue distress ink. The butterfly has been sprayed with blue perfect pearls mist, but it's hard to see in the photos. The sentiment says congratulations.
