A for Archway

The latest Butterfly Challenge is 'A for Archway' and as I've used snippets of paper and mirri card I'm also paying a visit to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 5" x 5" white silk 
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Pretty Bouquet' pre-coloured topper
Die: Tattered Lace Floral Arch
Punch: Woodware butterfly
Other: Wink of Stella
Snippets: Purple floral card, dark blue mirri card

I trimmed the floral paper and attached it to the card front, leaving a small border around the edge.  I trimmed the pre-coloured LOTV topper and attached it to the card.  The floral die cut was trimmed to remove the doves from the top and a few flowers from the bottom so it fitted around the topper - I then attached this by the inside flowers only.  I punched three small butterflies from dark blue mirri card and attached them to the floral arch.  To finish, I added a Wink of Stella to highlight the cute image.
