Butterfly and flowers birthday for Joan

The tea potters on Splitcoast Stampers are making cards to send to Joan aka Scrappinmama72inPA for her birthday. Joan has some medical problems and her daughter, Emily, thinks we can cheer her up with some birthday cards.
My card took a whole different turn. When I colored the butterfly, I was going to use some bright colors on a white back ground. Well, somewhere it took a different turn and became more subtle. Had I known I was going to do this, I would have not used the orange on the butterfly. I would have used a softer color. I used a Cheery Lynn die for the leaves, punched some little flowers that I rolled over with a stylus and added some little bitty pearls. The butterfly was colored with copics.
