Butterfly edge card

I thought I'd show you this very feminine card before I get busy into the weekend :-) The butterflies are from a file I purchased from the Silhouette Store but I've used just part of it and turned it into a shaped card on my Cameo. When I was learning to do this my talented friend Adele kept me right. My card stock is a lovely pearlised lilac, one of my top 5 colours, I added sparkle to the butterflies with glitter which has a tone of lilac in it. The backing paper is from a stack of Riverbank Revels. I cut my the sentiment which is again from the Store and added some sparkle afterwards. I've kept the insert the same size as the main card to you can see through the butterflies.
