Butterfly challenge

Oh, boy. A cold, rainy spring day in the U.P. goes right through you right down to the bones. But we really do need the moisture-everything was really dry. Good day to stay in and play with paper.
This card is made for the Flourishes 'Timeless Tuesday 167', the challenge being all about butterflies.

I actually made 3 cards, and it's really hard to choose which one to enter. I am still creating with this new Recollections paper pad 'Habitat'. It is full of butterflies, dragon flies, ferns and mushrooms. Gorgeous color combinations-such pretty papers. All 3 DPs are from that pad, the purple cardstock is Bazzil, and the green is SU. I cut the butterfly out with the Cheery Lyn Butterfly dies, put them together with just a piece of tacky tape in the middle, added some recollections rhinestones for the body. The sentiment and frame stamps are from one of the Our Daily Bread Designs Mini tags sets. The ink is Stampin' Up. I wanted that panel to remain small so I cut around it by hand, put it on a piece of green, cut again, then on a piece of purple for the final cut. Mounted it with foam dots.
Hope you like.
