Layered Butterfly

Another inspiration card to show you today for the butterfly challenge.
#79 Butterflies + L is for Lots  of Layers and/or the colour Cream.
I have used cream cardstock for the base card and layered up with two die cut frames using Crafts-Too rectangle dies in caramel and then coral to pick out the colours of the butterfly. The image is from Hundory's 'Little Book of Butterflies' which I have adhered to coffee cardstock and then attached to the cream card with 3D pads. The Butterfly has been fussy cut from another card with the same image and then adhered with a 3D pad to the front of the card. The wings have been bent to give a feeling of movement.  Bronze pearls in the corners are from my stash.

The challenge is running for another 2 weeks and closes on 13th June.  Hope you will have time to join in the fun.
