Twitterpated Patchwork

Here is the card that I have sent to Maria Miia Malmgren in Sweden,
as part of the Post Crossing Handmade Cards swap.

I have used my two favourite papers from the Twitterpated DSP and cut them up into 1.1/4" squares,
then patch-worked them together again and then embossed the piece in the 
 Textured Impressions Square Lattice Embossing Folder.
I stamped the sentiment from the You Are Loved stamp set onto a piece of
Twitterpated DSP then punched with the extra large oval punch.
I embossed the Baja Breeze frame with the Textured Impressions Designer frames 
embossing folder, then fussy cut this out.
The butterflies were die cut with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit die. 
Tiny Basic Rhinestones were used for the Butterflies bodies.
I put some spare butterflies inside the card for when Maria opens it - they will "fly"out!
Hope that Maria like this!
