Vera’s View Challenge

When I saw this inspiration photo at the right,
for Vera's View Challenge over at Lily Pad Cards, I know I want to play.  But there's so many pretty elements in the photo, I couldn't decide what to do.  But finally I picked one thing (okay two) to focus on.  I really like the cupcake that's top with the pale green flowers and I love the subtle wood grain background.  So, I took my butterfly punch and punched out a bunch of butterflies using very pale green paper and glue them to a white scallop chip board, then mount on distressed woodgrain pp.  I had so much fun doing that part, I didn't even think about stamping!  Well I managed to stamp a sentiment, but it's really subtle.  Could you spot it on my card?  I'll give you a hint, it's in French.

Here's another view, photo take during daytime,
I think it show the colour of the butterflies much better. 

Card base: BazzillBasic card stock (Green Tea)
Paper pattern: Studio Calico (Classic Calico Collection Vol. 1 - Woodgrain One)
3 inch white scallop chip board
Mini pearl
Lace ribbon
Ink: Ranger Distress (Antique Linen, Old Paper); ColorBox pigment (Frost White)
Embossing pearl: Ranger (Pearl Blue)

Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day.

PS:  the sentiment is "Meilleurs Souhaits" located at the lower left corner.  It means Best Wishes.
