Make It Monday #171

I'm popping in today to share a card that I made for

Now, I wasn't terribly original and used the same die that Betsy did for her card.
But I'm pretty happy with it all the same. ;)


I partially die cut my Life is Beautiful butterfly die and stamped
my sentiment (also from Life is Beautiful) before diecutting the bottom of the 
layering it over some Webster's Pages patterned paper.
I mounted the patterned paper on some aqua mist card stock

I'm also linking this card up to this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: 
Let's Be Clear (because I used clear sequins).

Thanks for looking!
