A card for the Aurora Wings "Butterflies" Challenge

Ive been itching to get down to colouring another Aurora Wings image and for the 3rd Challenge its all about Butterflies, so I thought this Asian image was just right for it, she is called "Chrysanthemum" and you will find her here, isnt she gorgeous and I printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her.
I then cut her out with my Nestabilitie Die and used a fancy one for the mount. The sentiment is one that I found on the web and printed it onto white card and mounted this onto a spare piece of mauve card.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card and the first mount is mauve card and the paper I have used is from Crafters Companion "Oriental" Cd its a daisy type pattern then I used some of the same mauve card and with a large flower embossing folder I ran it through my ebosser. Then around the middle I have wrapped a piece of pink ribbon and attached it to the back of the first mount.
I have also used a doily and placed this in the top right hand corner, and before placing my mounted image I have used a Tattered Lace Chrysanthemum Die and cut this out and placed in the bottom left hand corner, I also placed my sentiment in the opposite corner.
To finish of I have also used another of the Tattered Lace dies and this is a Oriental Butterfly and placed in the top right hand corner over looking the mounted image.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
