Blossoms and butterflies

This card uses the sketch for A Crafty little place 48; 'classic vintage':

I'm linking this for Fiskarettes Monday challenge: 'blossoms and butterflies'. I used a Fiskars finger tip knife to cut out the bits of the butterflies (they are Sizzix die cuts - one of the little green dies that I've had for ages). I cut the corners of the card using Fiskars corner edgers 'nostalgia' - I wouldn't sure if they would successfully cut through the card, which, of course, was doubled, but they did. (They corner grey areas are just the screen of the scanner).

I stamped with a Dawn Bibby design stamp, coloured the leaves with copic and stuck flowers over where the stamped flowers are, adding gems, also to the butterflies and the corners.

Papers are BG bittersweet and I tore the edges of the ovals round perspex templates.

This is also for:
