Fluttering Thoughts of You

Good Morning! This is my card for this week's challenge at Joan's Gardens.....love her challenges.  My DH says I took artistic license with this card as he says there are no butterflies this color, but he really liked this card even tho it has frills and lace.
The challenge was to use the colors peach and blue (teal), use some butterflies, and add something frillie.
I found this patterned paper in my stash and it gave me the start for peach and teal. I colored a paper doily with Copics and cut out the center and layered over a circle of light peach CS from scraps. I stamped the sentiment...I was able to curve it because it was a flexible clear stamp. I stamped the butterflies on a scrap of peach patterned paper and cut out and shaped. Assembled the card on a base of light peach CS, mat of the pattern paper, the doily, added a border of lace atop a strip of the pattern, and finally arranged the butterflies.
