When I saw this challenge on the Hero Arts blog, I ran for my favorite Hero Arts set, Antique Engravings.  This is probably my most often go-to stamp when I need a quick card.

The sentiment is from another Hero Arts set, Essential Messages.  Together, they balance each other nicely.

The Sizzix ef added some texture to this card.  I divided it just to add some interest without detracting from the image and sentiment.  The purple gems match the purple edges of the butterfly, which was colored with SU markers.  For some sparkle, I mounted the butterfly on a round scalloped piece of glitter paper and added yellow Stickles to the two large circles on the wings.

Details of the challenge can be found HERE.
