Fussy and Fancy DT Card

We have a new challenge over at Fussy and Fancy today with the theme of butterflies, ribbons and punches.  Feel free to come and play, the design team have made some gorgeous cards if you need any inspiration.
I've gone with a shabby look for my card, using Stampin' Up book print paper and some K&Co papers in lovely, earthy colours, along with a hint of kraft card.
The butterfly was made with a Papermania stamp, coloured with Promarkers and cut out with some gems added for it's trail.  The weeny butterfly is a Papermania Flutterdies one.
I used my favourite Martha Stewart lacy border punch on the book print panel and added some chocolate brown ribbon and a bow.
The rose was made with a Marianne die, as were the kraft leaves and the other flowers were made with Nellie Snellen punches with pearls for centres.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Crafting For All Seasons - #26 - handmade flowers
Truly Scrumptious - #79 - distressing, die cuts/punches
Flourishes - #167 - butterflies
Oldie but Goodie - die cuts and punches - my older items are the butterfly stamp and K&Co papers
