For my card, I stamped the butterfly and saying in black ink on cream cardstock.  I masked the butterfly and saying and then added Pan Pastels to the paper.  I then took one of the new Cover a card backgrounds and stamped over everything in brown ink.  I removed the masks, added a bit more Pan Pastels here and there and then colored my butterfly with colored pencils.

Items Used:
New Cover a Card- Vintage Honeycomb CC231
Butterfly G16153
Saying- What If D13445
