Distressing!

Well Summer is well and truly over and taking photos in daylight is becoming a pain, I see trouble ahead. After grappling with the camera so my photos don't look like I'm on the Titanic, I'm sure this card is now slightly out of focus but I've taken so many pics of it to make it straight I give up, again.
As soon as I saw the sketch 102 on Mojo Monday I knew I wanted another go at using my butterflies and used only two layers which I think work better when they are this small. I inked every edge I could find even the ribbon so I could enter this card in the Spoonful of Sugar Challenge of stressing, oops I mean distressing.
The papers are Cosmo Cricket Early Bird but the 6inch pack, the sweet image is Belles and Whistles. I've used the stampin up punches for the Hero Arts sentiment and a cuttlebug die for the corner.
