Whilst flicking through my favourite blogs, I came across a Butterfly challenge blog and I love to use butterflies in my cards etc, so this was going to be perfect for me to join in with, so this weeks theme was flowers (with a butterfly)

this is my entry:

image from Gecko Galz 'Nature's Bliss'
backing paper Gecko Galz 'Coquette' papers n4
pastel blue pearls
After choosing which image I wanted to use, I resized it to fit my card and then chose my baking paper, I didn't want a strongly decorated one as I wanted the card to be quite simple. I picked number 4 and then colour matched it to the blue in the butterfly wings.
I printed two of the images and decoupaged the butterfly. 
Sentiment was produced in CAP2, with the colour matching the background of the topper.
Printed everything off, and assembled the card. Looks very simple and graceful.
