Citrus Tilda and setting my butterflies free

 For this project I used: Tilda stamped in Memento, coloured in Promarkers, My Minds Eye Bloom and Grow papers, greeting, and embellishments, Tim Holtz ink, Papermania Capsule Collection bow and pearlised card.
I started by inking all the edges of my papers and pearlised card with a Tim Holtz tea dye ink pad. I placed the papers in opposing corners, leaving little borders of white card showing, and blocks of white space on either side. I placed tilda in the top left hand corner and placed a bow. I then filled the white blocks with a greeting in the bottom left hand corner, and arranged two flowers and leaves in top right hand corner.
I have taken a photo of my painted lady butterflies I have raised as I set them free in the garden this afternoon, hopefully they are enjoying flying off into the distance!
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
