Lavender and Lace

Hi All
Hasn't the weather been glorious today, maybe we are going to get some summer after all!!
One of the cards that I have had to make recently is this one ordered by a lady who comes into the BP garage where I work.
Her only request was Yellow, Lavender and Butterflies so I immediately thought of this lovely Clarity Montage stamp.
For once I was actually sensible and found my papers first instead of trying to match my coloured image to my papers. Who knew lavender was so hard to match up!!
The background papers are all from my stash and the inks were Dusty Concord and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks.
 I decoupaged the central butterfly and painted the tiny ones on the panel with thin undiluted bleach.
The Montage stamp has matching single butterflies which I am lucky enough to own, so I added a couple of them as well as a flower, lace and some die cut leaves.
I found some tiny butterfly charms in my stash and an appropriate greeting.
I never realized  I had so many butterfly related items lol.
I hand delivered the card on Monday, so no need for a box Gilly, it was actually surprisingly flat.
I would like to enter it into the following challenges
Totally Gorjuss - Anything Goes with Flowers
Make My Monday - Use Lace and/or Ribbon
Incy Wincy Designs - Bring on Spring
