Close your eyes of my butterfly swap cards

Wednesday is here, goodmorning everyone.
Today I have one of my butterfly swap cards for the June Card Swap over at Craftmad.
I wasn't liking this card last week but I have done a couple of alterations to it and now I am much happier.
I started with a lovely piece of Kachina Bazzill Card for the base card.  I cut out four squares to create the window.   Then added a piece of acetate and topped this with the textured brown paper to create the window frame.  Next I inked up the butterflies from the 'SU Priceless' set.  I used my inkspots to get multicoloured butterflies and then added a flower bling to one wing.  The flowers I punched using my small retro flower punch and matching SU cardstock.  The leaves were also punched.   Around the edge of the window frame I stamped some flourishes with Versa Mark and a flourish stamp from the 'SU Priceless" set.  I have added a gold sticker "A Gift for You" in one of the panes of the window.

I forgot to take a photo of the inside but I have attached matching butterflies to the inside and have some more flowers running along the top edge of the window frame.

Well best keep going.....happy Wednesday everyone.
