Embellish It with Butterflies

Have you checked out Embellish Magazine's current challenge.  The colours are fab and the theme is butterflies.
Here is my card.  Like yesterday, it's a bit different from my usual style I think (look, no stitching), but I got a new butterfly die (HERE), and once I'd got black butterflies in my mind... I was off.  My husband was scornful... "a black butterfly", he said, "where do you see those?"  
Answer: In my mind. Obviously.
Have a happy day.
E.T.A - just noticed... there IS stitching.  Lots of it.
I'm overtired. :(

In your mind and mine now! I love that dramatic, black butterfly - totally steal the spotlight!
Oh and you can't go wrong with those polka dots too - so fresh!
