Stampin' Up Patio Party Butterfly Warmest Wishes

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a card I made a little while ago with Stampin' Up Butterfly stamps and inks, shrink plastic, Patio Party papers and cardstock and gems.
I started by making my butterfly embellishments. I used Stampin' Up stamps which I stamped with inks with colours which go with my choice of designer paper and cardstock. I cut some of the butterflies out with scissors and others with a punch I have that goes with the stamps. I shrank them all then put them in a heavy book until they flattened a little.
I cut a panel of white cardstock and arranged the butterflies until I was happy with the design. I then mounted this on cardstock. I stamped out a sentiment and matted this with the two colours of cardstock I had used on my butterflies. I then added this to one corner of the panel and then on the opposite corner I decorated with clear gems in a corner pattern detail. 
I covered my card with papers and then decorated the inside too, and added a die cut piece of white cardstock for the message-I chose a circle to go with the circle pattern on the paper behind it.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
