Tree of butterflies

   One of my niece's has her 21st birthday next month, so I have made this card for her.
   The image is from the 'Essence of Nature' set by Elusive Images, now Chocolate Baroque. I coloured it using Promakers and distress inks and then cut it out using  a Spellbinders grand scalloped circle die. I used another one of these dies to cut out matt gold mirri card onto which I mounted the image.
   I then layered some pink textured paper onto cream card and then fixed the stamped image to this. I re-stamped the image and coloured and cut out the butterflies and having sprayed them with iridescent spray and sparkle from Crafter's Companion I decoupaged them onto the main image and added a bow to the bottom of the tree.
   Finally I placed some gold peel offs in the corners.

   I wish to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Allsorts - treemendous
   The Crazy Challenge - b is for .... butterflies, bow, birthday peel offs
   Addicted to Stamps - colour palette
