Purple and Green with a Flourish

For Joan's Gardens' challenge this week, make a purple and green card  using a strip of patterned paper. Some kind of butterfly embellishment is required too.
I used the sketch from Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Sketch Challenge (FTTC79) and one of my Flourishes stamps that I won.!
I stamped a branch stamp from Flourishes and cut out with a circle die letting the branch extend beyond the edge. I added flowers that I cut with  a Sizzix die. Used green and purple papers and a pattern paper for borders on the sides. Also dry embossed purple backgound. Finished with a butterfly brad and stick on sentiment.
Party Time Tuesday: Anything goes birthday card
Flutter by Wednesdays: Open challenge, just be sure to have a butterfly, fairy or angel on your creation.

Ink: SU Always Articoke

             K&CO Pattern Paper
Die Cuts: Nesties Circles
                Sizzix Build a Lilac
