Butterfly Country Garden Card

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with something very different for me. I have challenged myself to use some of the stash I have in new ways from my usual style so here is the first of my new cards-I hope you like it!
I used Dovecraft Garden Party papers cut with Sizzix Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die and Spellbinders dies for my butterflies. I then edged these shapes with chalk inks to distress them. I then made a background with these papers on an elegant shaped cream card blank which I also inked the edges to match.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Created with Love Challenges: Three of a Kind
Lollipop Crafts: Anything Goes
The Crazy Challenge: Anything Goes
The Pink Elephant: Create your own embellishments

Thank you for looking and for all your lovely comments :-)
