The Butterfly Challenge Guest DT

A good afternoon to all my friends and followers today, I hope this post finds you all well and enjoying your week. I have some exciting news to share with you!
My post today is to let you know that a new challenge is beginning today over at The Butterfly Challenge and I am delighted to say that I was asked to do a guest DT spot for this challenge as I was a winner in a past challenge. 
When Mrs A emailed to ask me I was completely over the moon and felt very honoured and couldn't wait to start making my card as I just love butterflies and they very often find their way onto my cards.
Mrs A asked me to pick a letter of the alphabet so I chose 'P' (as there's lots of things I use on my cards beginning with that letter!!) and Mrs A told me that it was going to stand for 'Patterned Paper', so..........
for this challenge the theme is going to be Butterfly/s and Patterned Paper

My card is made with some gorgeous papers from Michele R designs called Butterflies and Hummingbirds and I've layered it with Kraft card.
The image is from a Penny Black set I won in a past challenge and I backed it with a fancy Xcut die shape. I embossed a white panel with a butterfly embossing folder I got with a magazine and used a sentiment and tag from the elements pack. I punched some small butterflies using an old punch I got at hobbycraft and have used lots of glitter and pearls and a few kraft paper flowers:

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
