Black and lilac butterflies

This is a simpe card using some holographic butterflies card that I bought years ago, deckle edged on my cutter, matted on to black which was again deckle edged and then on to a lilac card blank. The two black butterflies were cut with a die that came with the first die cutting machine I had from QVC (the pink thing like a Sizzix), edged with silver and completed with greetings and glittered flowers and gems.
