Muse and Butterflies

I've been following Muse for some time, admiring all the entries each week, but I've never actually entered a card myself. I love CASEing cards, so I hope to find time and join several times from now on.
Anita's card made me think of spotlight stamping, a technique I've never used before, so thought I'd give it a go.
I used a butterfly stamp from Memory Box and my Promarkers. In retrospect I think I shouldn't have colored with blue around the butterflies but rather have left it untouched. The sentiment is made using stamps from Technique Tuesday. I felt my card was a little bland so I used a mist and added 3 lavender colored sequins.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Muse Challenge - CASE Muse's Card
2) Allsorts - Add a Butterfly
3) Just Add Ink - #272 Butterflies
4) Fab 'n' Funky - #269 No Patterned Papers
