White plus One

Hi everyone,

Apologies I am running a little late with my post for our new challenge at Crafty Creations.

Our theme is White plus One.

Do you know how hard to chose that plus One!  I finally decided on girly pink. 

Here is my card:

I have used Modern Mosaic on the embossed panel and the butterflies have been created using the Bitty Butterfly Punch and the Beautiful Wings Embosslits.
The sentiment is from the A Round Array stamp set and punched out with the 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch.  The ribbon is retired Pretty in Pink from my stash.
Here is a close up of the embossed panel

The sentiment was from a free stamp set called Heirloom Ornament by Spellbinders.
