Rockin' the Boat

I found this wonderful Butterfly Sail Boat digi at Beyond the Fringe Crafts some time ago, and I finally made a card with it for Little Claire's Things with Wings challenge.

It's a penny-rocker, or tilt, card.
I think my favorite part of this card is how that bean-shape butterfly body sorta swings out.
The inside is simple, with another little butterfly:
I was naughty and didn't edge the foam tape; I should have colored it before adhering it because by then it was too thin, but oh well!

Inspiration:
Little Claire's Monthly Challenge # 11: Things with Wings
