Digi Haven DT Card - Butterflies

Good morning digi lovers, we have a new challenge starting today over at Digi Haven.  This time our theme is "Butterflies" and we're sponsored by Floppy Latte who are offering a digi prize to our winner.  The DT were given a digi to play with, I chose this pretty hibiscus one.
 I coloured the image with Promarkers and added lashings of Glamour Dust to the butterfly.
The pretty papers are Kanban Cambridge, the paper at the bottom of the card is foiled but it doesn't show very well in the photo.  The pink butterfly is foiled also and was fussy cut from the paper pack, I added some gems for it's body.  I inked all the edges with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink to echo the colour of the flower.  The sentiment is a die cut from Craftwork Cards.
The flourishes were die cut from pink satin board using my Tim Holtz Elegant Flourishes die, and I completed the card with some tiny punched butterflies with pearls in the centre and three small blue gems.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Dutch Dare - #218 - Butterflies
Creative Belli - #170 - Flowers
Digi Darla  - #63 - 3D Element - the little butterflies were stuck on with glue gel and the wings lifted for dimension.
Get Inky - #4 - Die Cuts
LEJ - #54 - Die Cuts and/or Punches
