I Still Get Butterflies When I See You

ETA:  My card was an Honourable Mention at the Dynamic Duos challenge.
I made my card with MFTWSC134 sketch and the Dynamic Duos #62 color challenge, with the Dessert Option to add butterflies.  I will be adding this card to my box to go to Operation Write Home for the troops overseas to send home to their family and friends.

For my card base and mats, I used MFT Whip Cream and Black Licorice CS.  I stamped the butterfly from MFT LJD-Blissful Butterflies in Calypso Coral ink on Whip Cream CS and cut it out.  The sentiment from MFT You Make My Day is stamped with Mememto Black ink also on Whip Cream CS and cut out with MFT Circle Stax 1 and 2 Die-namics.  I sponged Calypso Coral ink around the edges while still in the die.  The flowers are made with MFT Upsy Daisy Die-namic in SU Calypso Coral textured CS and a Black Licorice CS center.  The center daisy is mounted with foam tape.  I glued just the center of the butterfly down, lifted his wings for dimension, and added a trail of Recollections Rhinestone flourish.  The DSP is from two different retired SU paper packs.

ETA: Thanks to Cheryl at A.R.T. Card Challenge for letting me know of their anything goes challenge this week.  I am linking my card in their challenge also.
