FTL134 - Butterflies

No time for chatter tonight - I have loads of things to do and no time to do them so I sat and made a card. Makes no sense except that papercrafting is the thing that de-stresses and soothes me when life is running by too fast!!
This card is based on the above FTL134 layout from Clean & Simple Stamping and the Less is More Challenge (A Touch of Red). The butterflies are from Making Memories; a teeny, tiny touch of Tim Holtz Tissue Tape adds the typewritten border. Sentiment, ink and pearls are from A*Muse|Studio. THANKS, Rachael for being my first customer in the online shop!!
I like how the single red butterfly balances the weight of the red sentiment on the right - Gotta go - too much to do and too little time to do it in!!

Hi Michelle PERFECT placement [as always] totally agree about the positioning of the red one, would have been so easy to put it in the centre
yours is much better
Appreciate your entry
