Another Butterfly Card

I loved the butterfly card using the Stampin' Up Swallowtail stamp on Stampin' Lab's blog.  It's just gorgeous and I thought I could quickly create my own version, but I'm still so exhausted that my brain just wasn't helping me tonight.  I didn't have the same stamp for the border, but I found a nice swirly one in my stash that I thought would work.  I embossed both and then colored in the butterfly.  I didn't have the right baker's twine, so I ran some white embroidery thread over some Distress Ink in old paper to give it a little age.  I then added distress ink to the paper and put it all together with a vintage button from my stash.  It should have a been a quick card, but I just needed a bit more time tonight.
