Butterfly thank you

Hi everyone, I received this embossing folder in the mail from a facebook friend.
It was a lovely surprise so I wanted to use it for a thank you card to post to her.

I think it also fits a few challenge themes.
Cuttlebug Mania, monochrome.

This gentle background makes this card is a refuge of peace. When I look at her I feel like I'm on vacation and all the problems are gone. I love this card.
