Butterfly ~ Thank You

A card today which I made some time ago.  I've just discovered it in my draft posts and I have never made the post live...... until now!
The background card was already textured and has been in my stash for ages, bought when the Papermill had shops where you could fill up an empty box with your choice of card/paper.  The corners were punched with a butterfly corner punch.  The purple die cut butterfly was attached to a white Memory Box 'Astrid Circle' die cut,  just attached by the body and a clear gem added for the head.  This was layered on a purple Sue Wilson 'Double Pierced Circle' die cut. Using the Astrid Circle die again with purple card, I used the waste to add four star shapes to make the design more balanced and added tiny clear gems to the centres.

I am joining in the following challenges:

    I remember the Papermill shops fondly as you could get some excellent card there at quite good prices.
