bling it on!

My mojo seems to have left the building.  It's been coming on a while now and the only time I hit my craft room is when duty calls.  Hopefully it will be back soon.

The theme over at the Outlawz today is "Bling it on" and this is my card.  This butterfly is sure to be the envy of all it's friends!
