Saturday Fun and Frustrations

It is a gloomy day so I thought it a perfect day to make some cards.  That is the fun part.  The frustrating part is the struggle I had with this card.  It sure didn't turn out as well as I would like and I changed the paper - cardstock combos three times.  But here it is.
One of the challenges at Stamplorations is to CASE a card.  Easy enough, right?  Wrong.  Here is the beautiful card I CASED
I wanted to use yellow for the butterfly but could not find any striped paper I liked.  I finally chose the one I used but added a strip of gingham Washi tape to add some yellow.
The leaves are Vellum cut with a MFT leaf die.
Butterfly is Hero Arts
Tag is Kraft Outlet.
I put Deepti's card in my CASE file so I can make another one.  I love her red butterfly and red dots.
