Perfect Sentiments: "Fairies or Butterflies"

It's Wednesday, and that means - challenge time at The Perfect Sentiment!
The challenge: create a card with the sentiment for the occasion of your choice
The twist: use a butterfly or fairy on your card
We have two sponsors this week!
The first one is Pattie's Creations and the winner will receive 3 free digis!
The second is Crafty City and the winner will receive a $5 gift voucher!
Here is what I created for this challenge:
My card is 4 1/2"x6 1/4."  I used a dark teal cardstock for the card base.  I cut some white cardstock at 4 1/4"x6."  I wrapped the white cardstock with some teal ribbon and tied it in a bow, then adhered it to the card base. 

I stamped three butterflies in three different shades of teal ink and heat embossed them.  I matted them with three different shades of teal cardstock and adhered them to the card base.  The sentiment is from Paper Smooches and stamped in a dark teal ink.  For more added texture, I covered the sentiment with a clear shiny gel pen.
Now, head on over to The Perfect Sentiment and check out the creations from the rest of the design team.  Then be sure to create your own card with a butterfly or fairy and link it up.  I can't wait to see what you create!
