Butterfly Pixies Pop Up Card

Today I am posting a special card I made for my dear friend Valerie.  Most of the images of the beautiful Butterfly winged Fairies come from the Gecko Galz set called Pixie Dust.  If you look closely you can see it is another one of my Pop Up cards, where I layer it from the center out, one image extending on to another.  If you are interested in making one I have a post with step by step instructions here.  The real butterflies are from Magic Moonlight, free digital images (I have had them in my file for a long time you may have to search to find them there.)  The front ticket with the pretty bird is a free image from Emily at Sweetly Scrapped, it is one of her free business cards that I went into Pic Monkey and edited to say Thank you.  I wrote Valeries name and signed my own in Stickles.   (I didn't have a picture of her name on the card so I used the one she had featured on her blog).  I used my  Perfect Layers Rulers to get the precise layers on the front of my card.  And, and, and, I printed these all out on HP Matte Matte photo paper.
I am entering this into the Gecko Galz Ephemera Emporium Crafting Challenge from the Yahoo group:The Summer Garden Challenge
