You're Pretty Amazing Cas-ual Fridays Challenge Card

A quick post tonight with a card I made for a couple of challenges this week.
I didn't have any butterflies for the Cas-ual Fridays challenge, so I improvised by getting creative with the flowers in their Truth Is clear set.  I think they kind of look like stylized butterflies.  I know, it's a stretch.  The verse is also from this same set.
I used the flower tops as butterflies by inking only the top of the smaller flower by masking off the rest of the flower with Post-It notes, then stamping onto my card.  Then I used the same flower right next to it, mirroring it so that it looked somewhat like a stylized butterfly.  I drew in the body and head with my micron pen.  

I used Tim Holtz distress inks with a Dove blender to color the 'butterflies,' and to stencil the stripes, using a stencil from my stash.  I added some spatters of ink, and used my clear Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to add some sparkle to the butterflies and stripes.  

My card today is for the following challenges:

Cas-ual Fridays - Tic Tac Toe (butterflies, 1 layer, stripes)
Calling All Sistahs - Color challenge
