Inspired butterfly CAS card

Evening all
I hope your week is good so far. I don't know about you but I am getting fed up now of this cold weather, I just want it to be spring and see some lovely sunshine!!
I thought I'd quickly pop on and post a card I made at the weekend which was inspired by one of the cards I received for my birthday-it was a square card with nine punched and raised out butterflies in different colours.  I realised I have a lovely butterfly punch which a friend bought me that I have hardly ever used so went and dug it out and this is the result.
I used one of my new First Edition packs-Up Up and Away (see, I told you you would be seeing lots of them didn't I????) and added some little teardrop shaped gems.

Every now and again I try to have a go at making a CAS card, which I do love, but I'm never really happy with the outcome-this one I wasn't too unhappy with. I took it into work today as I always keep a little stock of cards there and one of the ladies asked if she could buy it -so I felt I hadn't done a bad job!!
I'd like to enter it into the following challenges:

Divas by Design challenge 69 - Winged Things
Nutcrafters challenge 36 - Love and Friendship
Creative Inspirations challenge 200 - Sent with Love
Lisabdesigns challenge - Love
CAS on Sunday challenge 1 -Be my Valentine

Right, I'm off to make a coffee and try to warm myself up!! Thank you for popping in, have a fab rest of the week and until next time.
