Butterfly medley......

Yesterday afternoon I actually found a couple of hours to spend in my craft room....I have so much in the way of new 'crafting goodies' that haven't seen daylight yet so though I should have a little play and this is what I came up with.
I used one of my new S.U. edgelits dies and embossing folder on the side of my card. The embossed background folder is S.U also used Sizzlits large leaves and the Sizzlits  butterfly die from SU
The sentiment is from S.U. and the frame is from the Four Frame set.
 I found a pretty piece of mauve trim which I popped on top of the ribbon and of course added a few pearls.
Its now pouring with rain but its so refreshing after all the humid weather we have had in the last few days....

Also entering my card in the Fab'n'funky challenge using leaves
