GDT card for Papertake Weekly Challenge

Good day,

Time sure goes by fast, this is my 4th posting as GDT for Papertake Weekly, and this week's challenge is To Die For, use something die cut (not punched).

For this week's challenge, I created a gift card for a special couple celebrating there 25th wedding anniversary. For die cuts on my card I used Spellbinders #10 die and Magnolia Doohickey leaf die (more dies used below in the inside view). My image is from LOTV and colored with Copics.

For the inside, I used Cuttlebug corner die and Tim Holtz big tag die. For the sparlke on my flowers I added glimmer mist and used glamour dust for the image.

My Papers are from Magnolia wedding collection and I used silver pearlized cardstock.
I punched the butterflies twice, once on the DP paper and the other on vellum and added glitter. love this effect.

Here are more pictures of my card

I am also entering my card in the following challenges
