Easter Blossoms Easel Butterfly - PPA #90 sketch

Hello everyone,
Posting today for the Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge {#90} and here is the sketch.
Now I'll be the first to admit that my card may be stretching the sketch a bit, but I'm going for it anyway. So just squint your eyes and tilt your head and you'll see it!
So with that said.... here's my card.
I used the new "Easter Blossoms" set in the occasions mini... Love that set.
I started with concord crush card base folded to make an A2 horizontal card.
I stamped the blossoms in concord crush on WW cs and colored the blossoms with a blushing bride write marker. I stamped the sentiment in the concord crush then glued the WW to the blushing bride cs and wrapped with concord ribbon. Then adhered the double mat to the card base.
I have seen these easel butterflies on several blogs, but I first saw it on Donna's at Butternut Sage Designs. She used them as place cards for a brunch. So cute.
I used my Sizzix butterfly die in the BS with folded blushing bride cs, and slid it down just a hair to create a fold. I cut another large butterfly and one small butterfly. Then I ran them through the BS with an embossing folder. I assembled the easel butterfly together and stamped a sentiment inside from the new "Pretty Postage" in the summer mini and 2 single stamps in concord crush.
 I added a medium metal brad for the butterfly body and glued it to the card front.
Here is what my butterfly looks like from open from the side.
Here is a peak at the inside using some new and old stamps and a few more blossoms on the envelope. Well that's it.. hope you like it.
Hootie says "Hoot Hoot Hooray...Thanks for stopping by today!"
 Please leave a comment with your thoughts & I hope you will stop by again.
