Butterflies + P is for Patterned Paper

This weeks theme at The Butterfly Challenge is to use patterned paper. I'm in a bit of a CAS phase at the moment but wanted to use up some of my ever expanding snippets too. I've used my large Woodware Bubble Butterfly a lot stamp so treated myself to the set of three smaller ones and it's one of those I've used on my card. I stamped it with pink pearlescent ink. I've used quite a few punches for this including my japanese screw punch to cut the various sized cirlces.

The backing paper behind was also in my snippets pack as I had stamped onto it intending to use it for paper piecing but changed my mind so I cut the corners and the butterfly body from it before matting in on the base card. It turned out too fussy to be CAS but I quite like it. No greeting yet as I'm not sure what I'll be using it for. Lots of snippets used so I'm taking it over to show Miss at Pixie's Crafty Playground too

I'm also entering it into the following challenges:
