Thinking of You Butterfly

 This card was for an order, the lady wanted a card with butterflys and a thinking of you sentiment.  I used my Marianne buttefly die which is great for these sorts of cards I cut two butterflys one from the yellow DP which I used for the base of the card and then I cut the top one from white card, which I then inked with Wild Honey distress ink. The die cut is from a set of x cut nesting dies and again has been inked with the distress ink, I used the largest of these dies to cut the corners on the yellow paper. The border is punched with an x cut punch and then I have ruffled some seam binding along it, with a piece of velvet ribbon to hide the tape. A few white pearls to finish it off.
 Sideways view and then the inside some more border punches and some tiny butterflys punched with a woodware punch.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
