Butterflies

Hello.
We've been getting lots of rain here for the past few days, so much that most of the rivers are almost bursting, so I decided to go for a sunny coloured card to cheer things up a little. The newest Delicious Doodles challenge is bingo. I've seen a couple of these challenges before, but have never tried one. As I was making the card I was still trying to decide which line to use, so I've ended up with two. I was going to do Flowers, Image and Punches, but I didn't think the flowers on the background paper stood out enough, so I have gone for Punches, Glitter and Brads. The glitter doesn't show too well on the picture, but there is a spot of it on each butterflies wings. I've added a close up picture at the bottom to try and show it better. There are a few extra butterflies on here than on the original image. I cut them from two smaller copies of the image and stuck them so there wings pop up.

Mary Kate this is just gorgeous! A year or so ago I wouldn't have touched such colours, but seeing beautiful cards such as yours makes me want to more and more. The butterflies and design are wonderful and I really love your background paper.
