Butterfly Border

This is the second black and white card I've made this weekend.
The beautiful Memory Box 'Kensington Border' butterfly die is a new die my lovely DH gave me on our wedding anniversary last month.  It had been on my wishlist for ages.  Flowers are lovely to get as an anniversary gift, but he knows how much I love dies!  I used a Couture Creations 'Fireflies' embossing folder for the left side.  Tiny white pearls were added to a couple of the flowers on the border die cut and black pearls added randomly on the embossed side.  

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
