Cream and Black Patchwork Butterfly Card

Butterfly Patchwork
I know I keep coming back to the same card layout, but I love experimenting with different papers and embellishments to see the different effects I can get.
Close Up of Butterflies 
I love using papers with a word print.  I have used a mixture here, one is a scrapbook paper Craftshouse -Allsorts in Aniseed (CWAL06), and the other is taken from a really old dictionary I got from a car boot sale, the pages have really aged beautifully and the paper is quite delicate to use.
Patwork Butterflies
I have used an ivory linen card as it more subtle than white and have added small flat backed pearls to the butterflies for texture.  The butterflies have been punched using the Martha Stewart butterfly trio punch.
