The Butterfly Challenge - Spots and Stripes

A very late entry for Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge Spots and Stripes I don't use pink very often, but this Picked Raspberry is yummy!
I used it to stamp out the IndigoBlu "Bubbles Background" for the spots, and then using the edge of a Slim Jim, made the stripes. I added a little more ink around the edge, then decided I wanted the whole panel pink, who doesn't do pink???
The butterfly is from "Nature 1" was stamped out with FlitterGlu and Chariots of Fire "Mega Flakes" were added, the edge of the panel also has the same treatment.
It looked a little lost on the white card base, so I added a few pink butterflies for the background, and raised the panel on foam pads.
