Beat the Winter Blahs

My lovely friend Virginia is hosting a great challenge over at her blog.  You have to create a card that is a bit different - something with the 'Wow Factor'!
So I decided to overdo the bling on this GORGEOUS butterfly from the fabulous digikit - April 365 Challenge Kit.  I thought it would be great combined with this new HA sentiment stamp from THIS modern and stylish set. :)
Supplies: Image and PP - Crystal Wilkerson; Stamp and Notecard - Hero Arts; Gems - Hero Arts, Papermania; Glossy Accents.

And thanks for the great challenge Virginia. :)

Hey Lucy, Thanks again for entering the challenge. Due to my own fault, Mr linky got deleted by accident! I am now asking you to relink it again through Vicky's DH site InlinkZ. Sorry about this mishap...(live and learn for me).
