Joan's Challenge Tulips

Good Evening Ladies,
I am posting for a second time today. And really late. But I am afraid I will run out of time in the morning to post this card for Joan's Challenge Tulips . Here is the link to the challenge... http://www.atjoansgardens.com/2013/04/this-weeks-challenge-4-25-13.html
 create a card using items from the letters TULIPS
Here is my word items...
T- tulips from inky antics
U-used piece of jewelry from my stash
L- labels eighteen from Spellbinders
I- insect which a butterfly is even though I don't like to think of them that way. Cheery Lynn die from Joan's
P- purple cardstock that the butterfly was cut from
S- Striped paper
Now here is the card.....

 This is the used piece of jewelry. This piece came in a bag of old jewelry my sister gave me. I never turn down treasures like this. I can always use them to shake things up a bit. And I get to reuse something that may have been sent to the ash bin.
 This is a close up of the pretty butterfly die I purchased at Joan's.
This was a real challenge Joan and Selma! It did get me to put my creative thinking cap on. Thanks for the fun challenge!
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
