Joan's Challenge Two Butterflies Graphics 45

Good Morning Ladies,
Time for this weeks card for Joan's Challenge Two Butterflies Graphics 45 . You can see the challenge here... http://www.atjoansgardens.com/2013/04/this-weeks-challenge-4-11-13.html To see the sample card and the requirements click on this link http://selmasstampingcorner.blogspot.com/2013/04/joans-gardens-weekly-challenge_11.html
The requirements are as follows:
Use two butterflies
Use three different types of flowers
Use Aqua or Light Blue and White for the background
I think I have it all covered. Here is my card...
 I purchased the Graphics 45 Secret Garden pads on my last trip to Joans. I love Graphics 45 and thought this would be the perfect collection for this challenge. My flowers were created using Memory Box dies, Cheery Lynn dies, and a Sizzix die. All Memory Box dies and Cheery Lynn dies were purchased from Joan. The butterflies were cut from a Cheery Lynn die. The background die I purchased at Joans on my last trip there also. I don't think this is one of the newer dies out, but I am in love with it. The circle cuts are perfect to add pearls to. Pearl sprigs were added to this card to top it off.

 The sentiment from the 8x8 pad. I used the small matching pad on this card. Now I don't know how I will live without the small pads to match all of the future collections.

I am sending prayers for Joan to be up and moving soon!
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
