Butterfly and Hexagonal Snippets

Good Morning to you all. I'm here with my card for Mrs A's butterfly challenge and I'll also be popping along to the playground with this one too.

The required H for hexagon had me stumped for a while until I remembered I had some Xcut nesting dies, so using the smallest of the set I cut some hexagons from snippets of Hobby House papers. It was just a case of moving the Hunkydory butterfly and hexagon shapes around on the linen effect base card until it looked okay (although you may be able to spot the mistake I made when sticking them). The sentiment is a Clearly Besotted stamp and to finish I added a pearl flourish from the Ribbon Girl.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Butterfly challenge 'butterfly + H is for hexagons'
Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets'
Creative Card Crew challenge 'green'
Cuttlebug Mania challenge 'green with envy' (Xcut dies + Grand Calibur)
Papertake Weekly challenge 'anything goes' (my 3rd entry)
Sister Act Card challenge 'anything goes'

Thanks for popping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend. My plan for today is to do some housework or maybe just get crafty - but knowing how the days fly by I'll probably get absolutely nothing done!

I think this card is beautiful. Over and over again I try to play around with hexagons and they always look lost on the card to me, but your placement of them and the butterfly is just lovely. I can't see any mistake even if I enlarge the photo, so great job. I will be casing this layout for sure. Thanks a bunch for sharing this one.

A fabulous card and I love your layout. I spotted the mistake but only because you said there was one and I looked for it!
