Card for the Charity Stall

When it was a friend's birthday a couple of months ago she was sent some gorgeous die-cut mats from a friend in Holland.  She kindly shared them with me so I thought it was about time I made some into cards.  I have used various backing papers from my stash and on top of this place a white and gold vellum.  I've never put patterned vellum on top of patterned paper but like the effect.  I've attached the vellum with four brads I bought 1-2 years ago and have never used.  The butterfly is from Papermania and it is a build-your-own- butterfly.  I couldn't cut around the attenae so I made them out of wire instead.  The butterfly I have coloured in with Promarkers and added clear and green Stickles glitter glue to accent the butterfly wings.  I have distressed the edges of the die-cut mount to accentuate the cut area.

This card fits the following challenges:

Paper Sundaes - Photo as inspiration
Stampin' Sisters in Christ - Decoupage using a stamped image
Frosted Designs - Transparency
Flutterby Wednesday - Open theme
Crazy Amigo - Butterflies.
