Who made this card?

Well, it was me, but I still can't believe it. Even when Chase looked at it he couldn't believe I had made it. I like it, it's just not me... it's so pastel. And I don't know if you all know this, but I don't even really like pink! So not sure how I ended up with this card.

I used the 2 Sketches 4 You sketch:
And can I just say I was super excited to see some of my friends being added to the 2 Sketches 4 You design team! Way to go girls!
And here it is:
I do really like the way the little Hero Arts butterflies turned out! 

Stamps: Sentiments (American Craft); Stencil Art (Hero Arts)
Pattern Paper: Opal Botanique (American Crafts)
Cardstock: Stamper's Select White (Papertrey Ink)
Ribbon: Hibiscus Burst (Papertrey Ink)
Misc.: Diamond Glimmer Mist (Tattered Angels); Labels 4 Nestability (Spellbinders); Swiss Dots Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug)

Don't forget about the EBTKS challenge going on now!

I'm not a pastel or pink kinda gal either but this card is seriously sweet! Those butterflies are adorable! I love the way you've balanced your sentiment against the ribbon and butterflies - so pretty!
I can just imagine Chase's expression, my guy Chris does just the same when I step outside my colour zone! LOL!
