Prickley Pear Release Day 2

Welcome back to the second day of Prickley Pear's new releases.  Today we're featuring a new butterfly set that coordinates with the previously released butterfly die.  This set coordinates perfectly with the first butterfly set that was released earlier last year.
For today's card I went for a softer vintagey look.  The background papers are from Basic Grey's Capella line.  For the library card, I created my own on the computer and printed it out on cardstock; I rounded the corners and distressed the edges for a very aged look.  I stamped my butterfly onto the die cut using green distress ink and then sponged the edges with tea dye.  I adhered it to the double bow using Aleene's tacky glue for a good hold.  The sentiment is also from the new stamp set, you can see the all the clear sets here.  I added several embellishments to the card: two pearl stick pins from Maya Road, a small pearl flourish, a metal flower brad, and a crochet flower with a brad.

Be sure to stop by the Prickley Pear blog for more details on the new sets.  Thanks!
