Colour Create Challenge- Pink Green Brown

High, well here is my first challenge attempt and it's also the first challenge for the fabulous Colour Create team. Pop over and check it out as there is some great candy up for grabs.

I've been wanting to have a go at designing one of these butterfly cards, if you can call it a card, for some time. As the challenge had a butterfly theme to it I thought I would have a bash at it. I came across this design on one of the crafting sites quite some time ago and unfortunately I can't remember which site or the name of the designer. If anyone knows who it is please let me know so I can give them the credit

The base of the card is a bazzill scalloped circle scored into 8 sections and cut down one line. I used panels of brown and beige patterned paper on alternate panels and a green patterned paper on the others. Both papers from the Dovecraft range. I've glittered around the scalloped edges of the paper with pink ultrafine peewee glitters. I've punched some flowers and added some little flower stickers from stash. The beaded wire attenae and ribbon from stash.
