PDCC#60/Card Patterns Sketch #95

This week's Play Date Cafe Challenge is to use black/white with a splash of yellow.  Apparently, I went black/yellow with a teeny splash of white. 
The sketch is from the Card Patterns blog.  Once I finally figured out what I wanted to do the card came together really quickly but it took me a while to figure something out.  Connor and I have been sick with bad colds for many days now - today's big accomplishment is that fact that I changed all the sheets - it was time to get out of the sicky bed.  I slept away most of the weekend.
The pearls and black shimmer ribbon is from A Muse.  I LOVE the houndstooth butterflies!!  They came from Making Memories' Paper Reverie Noir collection.  Wonder what kind of flowers you have to plant to attract those?  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and was cut out with a Nestabilities die and airbrushed with two colors of yellow Copic Markers to get that mottled look that is in the background paper.  The flocked paper is from the La Creme matstack.
BTW - CAT won the blog candy from a previous post!
