Spring Butterflies

 JUGS challenge 124 this wk is colour, so I had a bit of a play:

I really liked the sketch at SS wk195 so I incorporated this into my overall design.

So here's what I did: I used My Minds Eye 'Spring Papers' backing paper, love those soft colours, did faux stitching around all the edges as well as inking them , naturally!!  I over stamped the centre dotty pannel using a stamp from Kanban, I re stamped and cut out the butterflies, coloured them with my beloved Twinkling H2O's.  For the cetral border I used EK Success border punch and added the butterfly cutouts. I love the soft colours chosen by JUGS and combined with SS sketch I thought it worked well.
I will also enter this card into the CI Paints... Polka Dots challenge.
