Wings and Things with Spots and Stripes

Yes, I'm combining two challenges again! This time I'm entering Papertake Weekly - Wings and Things and Crafty Sentiments - Spots and Stripes.

My small square card blank is from Craft UK. The backing papers are from Costco, the pink one, and I think the green is printed from a CD. I've embossed the pink with the Cuttlebug folder, Swiss Dots (it's nearly spots) and I embossed the green one with my Martha Stewart Scorepal (stripes!). The pink base card is from Papermill and the bright cerise Mirri card is from Joanna Sheen. The image is from Joanna Sheen's range of Favourite Flowers stamps. I coloured it with Promarkers and then cut it out and mounted it on the Spellbinders butterfly edged nestie. The little 'waste' butterflies add to the one that is in the basket of flowers. Did you spot it?

I will also enter it in to another challenge: - Ladybug Crafts Ink  - Flowers   - You've got a whole basket full of them!
