This is a CASE of Teneale's card Baroque Butterflies found here.Her Vellum butterflies inspired me to use some of my PaperTrey acetate sheets that I've been saving. They are the sheets that the stamps come mounted on. So I made an acetate butterfly and used Night of Navy instead of white as the accent color.

Instead of the Baroque swirls for the background I used Heartfelt flowers. The butterfly is SU's retired Wonderful Wings. Isn't it the greatest set, ever?

On a personal note the card is for a coworker who lost her 18 year old brother-in-law last week. He was a local football hero and the butterfly is done in his high school colors. By all accounts, he was a fine young man with a promising future. His life was lost in a moment of incomprehensible violence. He was to head to his first year of college on a scholarship in the fall. My condolences to his family, teachers, friends, fans, and all.
