You Make The World a Better Place

I fell in love with a creation from Danielle Flanders of Homespun with Heart.  I made a similar card (same layout) and some of the same stamp sets; but I used some different products such as enamel dots instead of the sequins Danielle used.  I also used different designer paper - My all time favorite color combination is used (pure poppy and lemon tart as well as sometimes using barely banana with real red).  In addition I fell in love with using grey as my neutral.  Danielle's post can be seen at:  http://danielleflanders.blogspot.com/2016/01/stitched-sentiments-revisited.html

One note:  the photo makes the background of the butterfly as black - however it is the same gray used in the sentiment.
