Butterflies, Bees, Dragonflies, Ants What do they have in Common?

It's the new challenge at Shopping Our Stash!!! Challenge #313 is all about bugs we want you to use any insect/bug on your project that you want to. I love butterflies so that is what I wanted to use and in a very different (for me) colour. So here is what I made.

I used an unbranded butterfly die and the sketch from Cheerful Sketches.
The white enamel dots are from the Eyelet Outlet Store. 
I started out to make a  5  1/4 square card but as I was placing the oval on the finished card I realized the opening was in the wrong place and the sketch didn't work that way, so I cut the card at the fold and placed it on the 5 1/2 square base.  That shows I shouldn't be watching a good mystery movie while I put my card together. 

Close up of the die-cut.

I didn't put a sentiment or finish the inside as this is one of those "generic" cards to finish as it is needed.

I will be entering this in:

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to check out the Main Blog and see what the rest of the design team have made.
