Muse 100th Challenge; Virginia's View - A Clean Slate

Hi everyone ~
This week is the 100th challenge and 2nd anniversary over at Muse, and to celebrate, Design Team member Michele Ferguson provided us with the most beautiful inspiration! Here is her card:



In addition, we are being asked to incorporate a song with our sentiment! I went through all of my stamp sets and finally found one that worked with the Luther Vandross song 'Always & Forever'.


I don't own a large heart, so I first die cut the PTI butterfly and stamped inside the aperture, then stamped the sentiment in 2 colors, added a few pearls, and that was it! And, since it's perfect for Virginia's View challenge - 'A Clean Slate', I would like to enter it there.

That's it for me...I hope everyone is having a great day ~
