(2012 Card #2) Fluttering Butterfly

Ok here's #2  I love the idea of  a butterfly  "fluttering"  inside the window.
I made the flowers with ribbon by pulling one of the threads from both ends and tying together then placing a bit of bling for the center.  I totally loved the technique at She shows how to make a frame with corner punches...Mine is made from Martha
Stewart Medallion Medium Double Punch (not a corner punch & I miscalculated the positioning, so I just got the basic outline for my edge...but hey this was my first try!)  I used MS Double Loops for the bottom edge of my pastel stripes.  Stamp by GinaKDesigns Hope Is Faith, Butterfly was heat embossed with pink & inked with blue for one side and the other was embossed with blue & inked with pink!   I glued the green & striped paper on card, then ran through my Cuttlebug with the largest classic circles Spellbinders die, then glued the string holding butterfly in upper center & then glued the circle frame on top.
