Flutterby Butterfly

Here's a double page spread from my Welsh holiday scrapbook, this time featuring some macro shots of butterflies I took at Pili Palas on Anglesea.
I've gone for the slightly unusual colour combo of mustard, rust and grey to compliment the colours of the butterflies.  The patterned papers and journaling tags are My Minds Eye, all the edges were given an inking with Mustard Seed Distress Ink, and the plain grey cardstock is Bazzil Bling.
The lettering was done with American Crafts Thickers stickers, they have a lovely foam texture. I used an Xcut die to create the doily and finished off with some rust coloured ribbon, mustard pearls, gold shimmer dots and several Anita's Flutterdies butterfly toppers.
