Butterfly Easel Card

I had seen a tutorial for this a while back and been meaning to try it!!  I made the template up and thought I would do it yesterday.  It took a while to do as the butterfly was cut by hand on the cardstock and the backing paper.  I used Tim Holtz Distress inks on the backing paper, flowers and butterflies and also edged with it.  I used an Inkadoo butterfly stamp on the butterfly base.

I used Cardstock from stash
Backing paper from DCWV Sunkissed
Prima Flowers
Buttons from stash
Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch
Tim Holtz Distress inks
