Butterfly Blues

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a card I have made using a photo I took of a gorgeous butterfly I saw in the butterfly house at Natural History Museum :-) I printed the image onto canvas to give it real depth and texture, I then used Papermania Burleigh Blue papers, buttons, and bows, paired with polka dot ribbon, pearl gems and a vellum sentiment. I hand drew faux stitches around the card too.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
