Spring time butterfly

Well, we had spring-like weather yesterday so I made a springy card! Today we are entering back into the deep freeze!
This is the first time I had to ink up my new Crafty Individuals stamp I won sometime ago! I used Dutch Dare's challenge idea for the mosaic and the sketch from Sketch & Stash! The butterfly is layered on vellum with silver embossed script. The sentiment "bloom" is reversed embossed with white and metallic silver. I used the last of my silver shimmery ribbon...eek! I must seriously replenish my ribbon supply!!! Hope you are all enjoying your weekend! Today, my DH is delivering a beautiful pencil post bed frame he made this past week...I'll try to post a picture later. He made it from walnut wood and it's gorgeous! IMO!
