It's an orange day

hi again fellow bloggers
I have made a thankyou card in a monochrome again using orange - not a colour I often think to use but it is a warm colour and the weather here has been so wet and grey a bit of colour is always welcome. No stamping at all on this card,

I used the waste from a die cut and inked through it with rusty hinge distress ink, then with an xcut butterfly die that came free with the recent docrafts magazine  I cut one from orange light card and attached on to the inked butterfly. Using a woodware butterfly punch I punched out 6 butterflies from the same card, coloured the thorax and attached them behind the larger butterfly. The sentiment is a sizzix embossing folder and I finished it off with a toning piece of waxed thread for the bow trim.

I am entering it in the following challenges:
