Retirement Tea Party

A co-worker has a friend that is retiring.  She asked me if I could make a card for her friend that is in pastels with butterflies and would have something to do with a tea party...  I instantly thought of this adorable image from The Paper Shelter called There's A Fairy In My Tea!  The sentiment inside the card is from Create With TLC.
I used a lot of butterflies.  The top (green) is a big die, the pink and blue butterflies are from a Stampin Up Thinlet Die.  The leaves are another die.  I added flowers and a bow I found in a fun pack at the dollar store.  I added a bunch of gems and string pearls and some cheese cloth for texture.

Thanks for looking!
