Courtyard Butterflies

It's the 2nd week already for the Butterfly challenge.

#79 Butterflies + L is for Lots  of Layers and/or the colour Cream.

Here is some more  inspiration for you.

Base card is made from green pearlised card stock and layered  up with cream cardstock then a green design paper (no name from my stash).The next two layers are a gold pearlised card embossed using Sizzix ' Courtyard' Texture Fades 659449. Image is by Hunkydory from their  'Little book of Butterflies'.
It is not very clear but the background on the image matches in quite well with the embossing folder pattern. Cream lace, gold sticker flowers and the sentiment sticker from my stash. Five layers this time and a further two if you count the sentiment which is cream card layered up with green card and attached to the front with 3D pads.

I used the oddments left over to decorate the inside of the card so that's  also 5 layers if you count the lace strip in too.
The challenge runs until 13th June.
