Butterflies

Don't know quite why this picture is so wonky but I don't know how to straighten it so it has to stay!
When I started making this card I had in mind I had seen quite a few challenges for things with wings and butterflies but now I have been looking for them and can't find any except the Stampman one which was what I originally saw. The blossom stamp is from a Stampin Up set and it makes lovely backgrounds as well as a focal point, its a lovely set to use. The butterfly is from Ecogreen crafts. I am sending this card to a friend who is in hospital and very ill, she is not in a local hospital so can't go and see her so sending this instead.
edit: Cazro just told me the St Lukes challenge is still open so I'm entering this on there now. Thanks Carole.
