Butterfly silhouette

Good evening to all my friends and followers today, I hope everyone is having a good week so far!
I've made a bit of a boo boo this week-I'd made a second card for my daughters birthday and took it over to her without taking a photo-d'oh, I've never done that before!!! Luckily it's not gone far and she's promised to take a photo of it at the weekend when she opens it so I can share it here, must be my age!!!!
So, as I can't share that one I'll share this one I made with a free stamp set that came with Quick Cards magazine. The stamps have sat in my room and I've been meaning to give them a go-I just love all the silhouette cards I see on the blogs!
I used some paper from a large pack I bought at the Works-a real bargain at only £3 too!!
I used all the stamps from the set plus another freebie for the middle butterfly and sentiment. I'm trying to use more physical stamps as I'm such a 'digi' girl lately and it's a shame that my stamps don't get used so much.
I only added some little pearls as I wanted it quite CAS-with hindsight I'm wondering if it would've been better to glitter the butterfly maybe? I wanted this for my box at work and I must say the CAS style seem more popular with people, I don't know why!!
