One Stitch at a Time Challenge 222

This time at One Stitch at a Time the challenge is: Anything Goes with a Butterfly! So, not too hard? I know I love using butterflies on my cards - next to flowers they're my favourite embellishment!

I used a lovely image from IKEsART called Japanese Lady Colour, which, as you might expect, comes ready-coloured!

The image is so lovely that I didn't want to overpower it with lots of embellishment (apart from a butterfly, of course) so I simply matted it onto yellow card and embossed some shiny black card for the background using an Embossalicious folder. I added some ribbon and a Spellbinders butterfly, and that's it.

I hope you can join us this time.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
