beautiful butterflies

A few weeks back i invested in this lovely butterfly die after using one belonging to a friend, it's inspired me to make lots of pretty cards but this is one of my favourites. I used holographic card for the butterfly and tail, then i taped velum to the inside of the card which i cut diagonally and folded back through the aperture, the points are held in place with some brads from my stash. Pretty lilac backing paper to cover the inside and tone with the brads really makes the butterfly stand out and it was all finished off with some little silver peel off corners.   

I would like to enter this card in:
