Another Grandma card

The sketch this week from Unscripted Sketches:
The Embellish Color Challenge:
An inspiration challenge from Little Red Wagon:

For my card I incorporated the Shabby Tea Room challenge to use some scraps (these pattern papers are scraps of CTMH papers that I have had for a long time) and I also incorporated Betsy's challenge to 'dress up a die cut'  (oh to be able to create like Betsy)!


I really wanted to make those pretty roses that I made the other day, but to be honest they are so fussy for me, I like these easy spiral roses - the quick, unfussy factor - so me!  I did spritz them with Glimmermist.  I cut the butterfly with my Indie Art Cricut Cartridge (Betsy enabled this purchase a long time ago!) and the sentiment is from my Slice Think Pink Cartridge.
