Not Quite What I Was After

I'm feeling soooo tired today, how I long for a lay-in, good job we've a lovely long weekend off with the Diamond Jubilee break, also it's mid term break for me so that makes it is a break worth having!
Not much to say about this card, there's a bit of embossing on the cream strip, a paper pieced butterfly and layered tape and ric rack along with some of the sheerest ribbon ever! Oh, and rather unusual for me but a distressed edge to the cardstock around the image.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Crafts And Me, Add a ribbon,
The Paper Shelter 66, Shabby chic/vintage,
Crafty Cardmakers 69, Distress it,
TSTR 116, Photo insp/recipe.

Thanks for stopping by,

A beautiful card that lends itself to a lay about day. Very lovely. Perfect combination of elements. I really need to get some pearls. Yes...NEED. I love it when something migrates from my want list to my need list! Thank you for the inspiration.
