Take Flight!!!!!

Hello everyone: It's so cold and gray up here today that I wanted a bit of brightness and signs of Spring to cheer me up a bit so, I made this card, which I will share also at the CASolgy "GLITTER" challenge. Here's my card.

The flower image is from a retired SU set called "Peaceful Petals" and it's heat embossed using Versamark ink and SU Tempting Turquoise embossing powder. The golden, glittery butterfly is cut using THIS die from Cherry Lynn. 
The sentiment belongs THIS  stamp set by the Unity Stamp Co. I cut it in half because I didn't want to overwhelm the front panel and also, because I wanted to use the other part for the inside of my card, I  heat embossed it in black, I wanted to make a little statement here. 
Here is a picture of the finished inside.

This corner punch is from EK Success and that is the other part of the sentiment.
Here is the CASology CUE card that inspired mine.

Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
