Red Butterfly

Sometimes I wonder if a card can be too simple. Is just sticking something on a piece of card creative enough? That's a bit how I feel about today's card...

For the spotty background I used a piece of sequin waste as a mask and dabbed dark red ink on it with cotton wool. The butterfly is from an Anita's Dimensions sticker pack which I blinged up with some gems. The sentiment is computer generated. And that's it.

I've entered this card into the challenges at:

Less Is More - wings

CASology - monochrome
