Blue butterfly

Hello and happy Monday!
Today I started to try something a little different from what I am doing lately. You know that normally I use an image and then I make my card. Well... I was browsing on Pinterest and find some really cute card that I love, no colored image and CAS as it's my style too. So today, my first attempt to a different style of cards :)

This is a close up to the butterfly. I cut it with a Sizzix die and then I used the dots embossing folder (Sizzix). I placed it on a darker blue cardstock mat.

For the bacground I used a new folder I've got Paisleys (Sizzix). I cut the corners with a round punch. The only embellishment is blue baker's twine and a few blue rhinestones.

I would like to hear what do you think of this card... thanks!
