Bee Crafty Beautanical

Hello my crafty friends,

It's been absolutely ages since I've entered any card challenges and so I thought that I would rectify the situation.

Here's a card that I've made today using one of the 'Beautanicals'' stamps from Bee Crafty.  I bought this the Stamp Magic show in October, so I thought that it was time for me to give it it's first outing:

As I don't have any Bee Crafty Sentiments, I've used one of my favourites by Inkylicious as I felt that the space needed filling.

The flower itself is coloured with Worn Lipstick and Wilted Violet Distress inks and the background was created using the same colour Distress Oxides. I then various stencils used over the colours.  I stamped the butterfly twice and then shaped it's wings to give a more realistic look. I'm really happy with the end result as it has a lovely fresh look to it and I hope that you'll like it too.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
