End of the Caterpillar!

Good morning.
Wow! Monday again?? Are you ready for another week? 
I am so looking forward to this week because my youngest daughter is coming over for a long weekend visit that includes St Paddy's day. Haven't seen her since Christmas so it should be loads of fun having her and her friend to stay! I can't wait!
So knowing that she is coming, I needed to get ahead with some cards.
Today's card has a little more dimension than I've managed to get on my cards lately.  Teaching myself how to do CAS cards has made me slip into mainly one layer, so it's nice to shift it up and do something with dimension 

Today's card is for 2 challenges:
Inkspirational which has the gorgeous Pink and Grey colour challenge
and for Dragonfly dreams - use a die cut
and for The Corrosive Challenge - Anything goes

Items used:
Chocolate Baroque Butterfly Whimsy ( think this is discontinued now, but it is such a beautiful butterfly and sentiment!)
Die Cut Leaves: Marianne Creatables LR150 and Crealies CL CS 11
Hickory Smoke Distress Ink
Marvy's Blending Blox - Shades of Pink
Ranger Clear embossing Powder
So why have I titled this post "End of the Caterpillar"?...................

Thank you for stopping by. It was lovely to see you again.
Hope you'll come back soon.

WOW! This is soooo very elegant. And I like how you've got the butterfly right up there about to take off the card. So clever!
