GHWI Challenge #17, Things with Wings... Day 2

Can I even try to tell you how many iterations THIS card went through?  Lucky for me (and your eyes- your retinas would be burned!), a lot of them are still in the craft room recycling basket.  They weren't even worth saving to try redos.  Seriously.  Fugly.  Really.  However, I like where all of those versions brought this card in the end.

The butterflies and vines are from "Now and Always" while the sentiment is from "Quotes a'la Happy." 

Again, PLEASE join us over at Get Hippity with Ippity!  We'd love to see your work.  This challenge is "Things with Wings" and anything winged gets you in the drawing for a free set of ippity stamps of your choice from the fabulous Aletha Williams.  Even better, a project with ippity or Unity stamps gets you in TWICE!  AND you can enter the same project over at The Crafters Cafe giving you a chance at 6 random ippitys!  What's there to lose?!
