Pop up Flowers & Butterflies

 I have seen lots of these pop up cards on challenges recently, so I thought give it a go !
The box is simple enough and decorating the sides...but I did find it a bit more tricky working out where to add the flowers/butterflies in to give an even cover and full look...plus when it folds flat...it still fits in an envelope !!
 I used papers from MME Bloom & Grow...mainly scraps...I don't have that much left now.I used some punches to make the flowers, Quickutz die for the butterflies, gems from Prima and polka dot ribbon from Crafty Ribbons. The sentiment is from LOTV.
 The flowers all have 'card' stalks but the butterflies I tried to add them on with acetate, for that floaty effect ! Ok for a first attempt...but I am rather too impatient with myself...I think I prefer my flatter cards with bigger images, but I won't rule out doing another of these sometime.
I will enter this card into the following challenges;

Crafty Catz - Anything but square
Inkspirational - Pink & Green
Suzy Bee's bloomin - Anything goes
Blogger's challenge - Mother's Day
Brown sugar - Design paper
A little bit crafty - Flower power
