Butterfly Gingham Just Because

Happy Friday!

Today's card is for several challenges:

1) SCS Way To Use It #420; to use gingham
3) Color Q #182; to use Pool Party,  
Wisteria Wonder, Always Artichoke, and Lucky Limeade.
I played around with the editing, and although I did use Rich Razzleberry as the bg and mat, it looks like a dark-brown here in this photo.
Once I got started creating this, I wasn't sure how I'd incorporate the blue into the layout.  I ended up cutting out corner pieces for the frame.
The butterfly was stamped then colored in with CTMH Markers and outlined with Prisma Watercolor Pencils.  I then cut it out, (carefully around the antennae!), then popped it up with foam-adhesives.  I only had a tiny piece of Always Artichoke in my stash and wondered how I would incorporate that as well, and I ended up cutting a tiny piece and used it for the butterfly's body.
After adhering the butterfly, I decided it needed some sparkle, so I used Icicle Stickles in the colored areas.
On to the bow.  I played around with the placement of it, and this is where it ended up!  I'm still not too sure if it's overkill, but I really wanted to use that gingham!
Color Substitutions: I substituted Baja Breeze (for Pool Party), Certainly Celery (for Lucky Limeade), and Rich Razzleberry (for the Wisteria Wonder). 
Card Deets:
Cardstock:  SU! Baja Breeze, Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery, Rich Razzleberry, and White.
DP:  DCWV "Peppy Princess" Stack
Stamps:  Butterfly by Inkadinkado, Sentiment by TPS
Inks:  Memento Tuxedo Black, CTMH Markers, Dew Drops Chalk, Prisma Watercolor Pencils
Other:  Icicle Stickles, Gingham Ribbon, button, brad, white craft-string and foam-adhesives.
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend!

This is so pretty! I have to wonder though, how would this fit into an envelope?
