I've had an unbelievable three weeks so am running a day late with my card.

Items Used:
Sue Wilson Dies - Butterflies in flight
Frantic Stamper Dies - Scallop Borders (set of 3)
Dees' Distinctively Dies - With Love
Add pearls along the side.
Colour butterflies with inks and liquid pearls.

I added a butterfly on a V crease on the top of the insert.  
This makes the butterfly pop up when opened.

If I weren't so pressed for time I would have made a few versions.
Butterflies in Flight is a lovely die to use and you have extra types  butterflies for other projects.

June is almost over already.  
Make sure you get your card into the Challenge this month.
