Butterfly flutterby

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world...hugs
For once the sun is shining, we have wall to wall blue skies, the wind has finally dropped, and it feels quite warm :o)
For my card today I took inspiration from several I saw on DC. 


I folded and cut white linen card to 5x7.
I used a Marianne cut and emboss folder for the main panel and layered it onto MME striped card from the same pad as the card I used for the flutterby (so sorry the front has gone and I can't remember which pad).
Most of the ones I saw on DC had used dies to cut the flutterbies and I haven't got those so I set to and cut them on the Cricut using a Penny  Duncan svg and I am quite pleased with the result :o) 
The stamped sentiment comes from Lindsay Mason and alas it will be the only time I use it because when I pulled it off the block it came away in bits BooHoo!
