A Wedding Card to go with the Wedding Album

Finally put the finishing touches to my card, could I find a matching butterfly anywhere -no I couldn't. Then I suddenly remembered one that had come on a tag from a birthday a couple of years ago, and miracles of miracles, I actually knew where to find it!!
So this is a LOTV image, with LOTV circle sentiments and a hand written 'with love', edged with faux stitching, coloured with promarkers and edged with chalks. The matching ribbon is from papermania's capsule collection and the orange roses I collected ages ago from a sewing shop in the south of England, whilst on holiday.
I have used my new border punch for the flower effect along the horizontal cream band (x-cut) and again I have used my chalks on the edging and have finished it off with the gorgeous butterfly which has a wooden body and metal antennae.
I so enjoyed making this card, hope you like it too.
I am entering it into:-
Friday Sketchers #139 - Sketch by Jorunn
