Clearly Besotted Black and White Butterfly With Love Card

Good morning.  I hope you are all well today.

I have a card to share that I made for a friends birthday.  There had been a recent bereavement in the family so I didn't want to send her a jolly Happy Birthday card,  I wanted something a bit more classic, muted and understated.

For this card I have used:
The butterflies are from the Clearly Besotted Butterfly Wishes II stamp set stamped with black memento ink, die cut using the coordinating Butterfly Wishes die set and I have added self adhesive white pearls.
The DP is from the Dovecraft Back to Basics Monochrome paper pack.
The with love greeting is stamped using versamark ink and embossed using white embossing powder.
The white and black circles are die cut using the My Favorite Things Die-namics Zig Zag Stitched Circle Stax.
White scallop border punched from white card using a Fiskars Scallop Border Punch with black polka dot ribbon added from my stash.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

The Crafty Addicts - Anything Goes/Add a Sentiment
Artistic Inspirations - Anything Goes/Use a Die Cut
Crafting From the Heart - Anything Goes
Unicorn Challenge - Spotty Dotty
Crafty Gals Corner - Polka Dots or Stripes

See you soon.
