Looking at my most recent makes I seem to be in butterfly mode and this is one of the cards to share with you today.  I started with some patterned paper, then a square of deep cream card from which I cut out a patterned corner to show the darker colour through.  From the rest of the cream card I cut another of the shapes entirely and a couple of circles which were stamped with some text and the sentiment.  The die cut was adhered to the upper corner of the square and I found a printed border strip in one of my bits boxes which fortunately matched the background nicely.  A plain butterfly was die cut in purple card and a lacy one was cut from a left over piece of the backing paper before layering everything together for the finished card.
