Crackly Butterfly

I've been wanting to play with Crackle Accents since I saw THIS masterpiece over at the Hero Arts Flickr group.  How beautiful are those butterflies.
So I took my butterfly (from THIS set), crackled it up and had some fun! Love the results.

The sentiment on this card is from a set by UK company: Personal Impressions - I love THIS stamp set, lots of mixed font sentiments - my FAVOURITE things at the moment.
The playing card is from THIS gorgeous digikit, and the patterned paper is Papertrey Ink (here).
Finally, I added some yummy May Arts ribbon from The Ribbon Girl.
