Basic Butterflies

Change from all the inky stuff  I have been doing lately, I saw that Allsorts Challenge is to add a butterfly, I got the Stampin Up Basic Butterflies set for Christmas last year and I have used the flowers from the set a lot but even though I love butterfly stamps I don't seem to have done a lot with these ones. I love the lace effect on them and thought it called for a doily to mount them on, I have used a Cheery Lynn die that I have had for a while and not used as it didn't cut very well on the cuttlebug, cut beautifully today on the bigshot with only a couple of passes.  background papers from stash and part of a memory box flower die.
