Love Is Like A Butterfly.....

Morning all! Today's offering was inspired by the challenge at Digitally Sweet which is Butterflies. In keeping with the challenge which is TOTALLY digital, I'm showing you the card front first.

Here it is made into the card. This design took a bit of pulling together for some reason - I started out with an idea in my head that just wouldn't translate to page. Thankfully, I eventually ended up with something I was happy with even if quite a few things ended up changed! lol! The red bp (which isn't actually red), the 'glass' border, the sentiment banner and the paper used to back the gold butterfly are all from A Picture Paints A Thousand Words kit. I also used three digis - the gold outline from butterfly 1, the rose trellis (coloured in ArtRage) and one of the blank journalling labels. All of these are from Crafty Ann's. The two realistic butterflies are from TBAB's Butterfly days and the goldy/creamy backing paper which also has butterflies on it is from A Mother's Love kit from Daisy Trail. I used Craft Artist Pro 2 to put the card together.
I'm also entering my card into these challenges:
