The card was completed with the Retired Wings paper packet.  Wings was one of my favorite paper packs!  Quick and simple card is based on the sketch challenge this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  Here is the original sketch-

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

D1452 Find Your Style
Retired Wings Level 2 Paper Packet
Z2153 Sweet Leaf Ink
Z2157 Vineyard Berry Ink
Tuxedo Black Ink by Memento
Smooch Spray by Clearsnap

It is hard to see in the photo, but the butterfly has a glittery sheen from the Smooch Spray.
I have also entered this card in the following challenges:
