As I have these gorgeous flowers, I thought I’d go pretty in pink with this card.
I started by running the pink texture card through my Cuttlebug, then cut a small curve from the Slide Alongs in the top corner.   I cut two butterflies, one solid from the pink card and one delicate from the dark pink glitter card and glued them together at the body. 
Next I punched at least 10 circles from scrap card and 2 from the pink card.  I glued the circles together in two sets, making sure there was a pink circle on the top of both.  One set goes under the curve, the other on top of the curve.  There is a tiny piece of foam tape gluing the two sets together which allows the butterfly to move along the curve freely.
I placed another slightly smaller piece of pink cardstock underneath the first one using foam tape.  The small gap between the two layers allows the butterfly to move freely.
Next I cut a small white tag, stamped the sentiment and adhered it with double sided tape.
A mat was cut from pale pink glitter card and attached to the folded white A5 card.  The front of the card was attached using double sided tape.
Lastly the flowers were arranged on the bottom left side with a couple of smaller ones on the tag.  I used the Tombow Aqua glue to keep them firmly in place.
Thanks for coming and looking at today’s quick tutorial.  See you next time!
