Tilda with Peony

My dd and her boyfriend left yesterday so the house is quiet again so I am creating when I should be doing housework. But it's too hot to do that.
I tried to do a different layout. I seem to do the same thing over and over again if I don't have a sketch.  The ovals were cut out with nestabilites and then holes punched in each scallop. Afterward I edged each oval with chalk ink. The edges of the square paper were distressed. I doodled the white around the edge of the turquoise. The butterfly was given to me in a swap. Isn't it great. I would love to find that punch.  An organza bow is tied and placed where there is a lot of white. Pearls grace the one corner and the butterfly body. 
This card was done for the butterfly challenge over on Flutter by Wednesday here.

Hi Peggie! Your card is beautiful. I really love the colors you used. I like the turquoise/aqua but seldom use them. Now I'm inspired by your card!! Your coloring and shading are gorgeous! Just a great job on everything!
I believe the b-fly punck is a Martha Stewart one.
