CASE study #7- I'm in Loooooove!

It is time for another CASE study challenge! 
 This month brings us stunning creations by Mariana at Mariana Grigsby Blog.  As soon as I saw this gem, I was in love with it, such striking colours, so elegant and simple!  I just couldn't wait for this week to arrive so I could try my hand at CASing this one.
 Check out all the details of this gorgeous card click here


For this card I have chosen to case the WHOLE card, there wasn't anythink I wanted to leave out- LOVE LOVE LOVE!!
With such excitment I set about getting the exact butterfly, but with that came a whole array of delays..... I didn't have the software to unzip the file (should have checked that before I down loaded-Doh!!), but with the help of my wonderful Bro the software was easily obtained, but did take a wee while.  I printed out 4 butterflies and coloured them all slightly different, cut them ALL out............. starting to assemble the card............poop!!  The butterflies were all too small, doh, doh, doh!!!!!!!  Back to the drawing board again, however I did learn a lesson, only cut out the one you want to use-he he.  DD's concluded that this one was the one they liked.... I set to work with the cutterbee's!!
No airbrushing in this one either, I have been trying to control my addiction-lol!!!

Sorry for the colouring in the photo's, just couldn't get them right without the natural daylight!
