Polka Doodle challenge card

This week the challenge was to follow the sketch, apart from that we could do what we liked, so to be different I put it on the inside of my card!
The background paper is Polka Doodles dark orange curves, I changed the colour slightly in Photoshop E, and also used it for the butterflies.
The centre scalloped oval and the small scalloped squares were cut with nesties and the MS butterflies are Swiss Dot-ted. What a job it was to get the butterflies to hang the right way round, they kept flitting every which way but I finally got them to behave. I finished with a bit of doodling on the white areas and punch on the top border to finish.
