Midnight-Madness #40

Hi. This is my card for this week's Midnight-Madness Challenge. A very hard sketch for me this week and I struggled to get inspiration. I have stamped a butterfly twice and put it on 3D. (the scanner squashed it). I coloured the image with pencils and added stickles to the edges. The border was cut with a Fiskars embossing punch. I have posted this early as I have a very busy day today. Will add to Mr Linky when I return home...Loz
I have edited this 3 times and the words keep coming on the side and I don't know how to stop this...
