Winter's Butterfly

This card comes from a Christmas Card Kit from HOTP - though I didn't make the card the way they suggested - and I'm not even sure all the elements came from the same kit! (I have at least 2 different kits).  It was fun taking a variety of pieces that went together color-wise and just playing with them.

I love butterflies, so really liked the saying about snowflakes and thought it would be a good focal.  Then I started playing with mats, using them at angles and different orientations until I found what I liked. 

The only added enhancements were some inking around the patterned paper used for the background and around some of the elements, adding an eyelet and ribbon to the tag, and adding a few jewel dazzles (four around the focal, and one above each little element on the upper border).
