CAS butteflies

Ooooh, a challenge I found so easy this week, at Glitter n Sparkle - 
"include a butterfly" (or 5!! lol... )
I used the image " Garden 16" from Fitztown.
(which has 6 separate butterfly images, although I only used 5
as I like using odd numbers of things... :)  )

The thing that probably took longest about this card, was sizing up and lining up
correctly all those butterflies. 
I fussy coloured them all with my promarkers and added a little glitter to some of them
and fussy cut around them to make a different shaped card.
The sentiment was printed from my pc.
A simple embossed line around the edge, finished this card.
