Crafty Calendar April Challenge 'Add a Butterfly' Card

It's the first Saturday in the month and we have a new challenge over at Crafty Calendar and the theme this month is

For my card I have quite a few butterflies.

We are sponsored for this challenge by

Pop over to Crafty Calendar and share your butterfly projects and while you are there check out the gorgeous DT projects using other images from this months sponsor Sheepski Designs.
