Flutterby tree + a problem solved

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all well or getting there, {{{{{hugs}}}}} for those who want or need them.
Problem solved! Yes, the flower is a gardenia (see previous post). I have had several peeps tell me so and the final one was from a Master Gardener so gardenia it is. Thank you to everyone who took interest :o)
And now for my flutterby tree. Some time ago I saw a beautiful card with a button tree on it. I think it may have been created by Chrissy of Chrissys4cards, sadly no longer blogging so I can't check that out. BUT, if you know different then please let me know so I may give credit where it is due.
Well I don't have buttons, so I decided to have a go with flutterbies. I must say that I am pleased with the result, so I cut out kits (different sparkly colours) for my friends to make when they came around for a craft evening on Friday and they loved it! 
So, without more ado, here it is.


I was mortified when I blobbed red ink onto the finished card, but I have rectified that by sitting a "fallen" flutterby on it, and as I don't like even numbers I had to put another one on as well!
Although it looks white on here, the card is ivory linen from Paper Mill Direct, plus the red glitter card from The Range. Flutterbies punched with Martha Stewart, Tree cut with Memory Box and and attached to Spellbinders Nesties. Stamped flutterby from Lyndsay Mason set and sentiment from Stamps and Smiles. Nothing new was used in making this card :o)

Butterflies cover a multitude of sins Jackie and it's such a pretty and delicate card.

So gardenia it is, we don't have one in the gardens so I guessed it was as we have nothing resembling it, process of elimination.

What a great idea to use butterflies as leaves! I have a tree die somewhere, so I'll be giving this a go!

What a marvelous butterfly tree and I love the sparkles.
I always find it so interesting that you call them flutterbys and we call them butterflys.
What ever they are called your tree is gorgeous!!!
