Music Note Butterflies

Happy Saturday everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Crafty Calendar!
This month the theme is... Things with Wings!

For my DT card I chose this beautiful butterfly image from A Day for Daisies to work with!  To start... I printed the butterfly image out several times (in different sizes) and then I fussy cut out 3 of the 4 butterflies.  I roughed up all the edges with the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser tool before adding Vintage Photo distressed ink. The music note paper is out of an old and very used paperback book that I found at my local thrift store... what a find, it was exactly what I was looking for! :) The woodgrain background paper is from The Paper Studio and the sentiment is from Hero Arts... added my gems and there your have it! I love how fast and easy this card came together and I'm so happy with the way it turned out!
