The problem card

This is the card that I mentioned about yesterday, the one that just didn't go right. The problem was that when I stuck the green backing paper to the orange card it somehow got a black mark on it. I didn't notice until I had stuck all the other bits on. I couldn't cover it up so I had to carefully peel the topper bits off and then remove the backing paper. Then I realised that I didn't have a spare piece of backing paper big enough for what I needed, but that's ok I thought cause I can cover the join with the band across the card, but then I  stick it with the join near the top!! hence the butterfly!!  Thank goodness it turned out ok.!

I have followed the sketch on Sunday Sketch & Stamp challenge this week and am also entering it into the Created with Love challenge whose theme is 'Layer it up' where you have to use at least 3 layers, and Passion for Promarkers challenge which is add ribbon, lace or twine”

Here is the sketch
