There She Goes, Dance like no-one is watching Card

Hi guys! I had to have another play in the craft room this evening, and came out with a card that makes me smile :)
This is quite a large card (for me anyway) it is 7.5 inches tall by 4.25 inches wide. I started out with a Very Vanilla card base, and layered 2 pieces of patterned paper on it (Kaisercraft and October Afternoon), and some more gorgeous ribbon! I used this one from the Ribbon Carousel and tied a big bow. The lovely sentiment is from There She Goes and is a beautiful saying. Something I think we all need to take a little time to do.... Next up, I stamped three gorgeous butterflies from PTI and coloured them using my Stampin' Write Markers. I then attached the blue ones just using double sided tape, but the yellow one has a dimensional stuck to his back to make him pop :)
I am entering this into the Play Date Cafe challenge, the colours appealed to me straight away. I took inspiration from February Muse Karola Witczak over at CASE Study (the elongated card, and the general layout, also the touch of stitching...) and of course over at Ribbon Carousel Challenge
Thanks again!
