Swallowtail 'Thanks'

Good Morning lovely crafters... Im feeling very chirpy today, I cant tell you all why just yet but all will be told very soon so watch this space.....

So heres my card... again using the Chalkboard technique, 
to create my chalkboard effect - i used versamark ink and white embossing powder, then inked edges and around my butterfly using white craft ink....

Todays card was inspired by the challenge over at CAS-UAL Fridays... to play along too click on the image below:
