Botanical Builder Butterfly card

I saw this card on Monica Gale's blog HERE and I couldn't wait to have a go at this myself.
Once again it's a very minimalist card, not so much CAS,
but I think that it's so elegant in it's simplicity.
This is my effort.

The leaves are die cut with the Botanical Builder Framelits.
Two White,  two Lost Lagoon, and two Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum leaves were cut.
The vellum ones were layered above the Lost Lagoon ones, 
The white ones were winked with Stella!! (hope that this shows up)
The Elegant Butterfly punch was used to do one Melon Mambo and two vellum butterflies.
I unravelled  some of the Pool Party Glitter ribbon to fasten these three together 
and the loose ends made the antennae.
the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments.

Thank you Monica for this, I have really enjoyed making this!
