Just Magnolia challenge - animals and/or insects

Well its still super gorgeous weather here, its glorious!! It seems to be very quiet here in blog land the past week. I don't know if it is because of this annoying error message I''m getting and I presume others are too. I am truly fed up of it and am extremely tempted to change to another blog host, it is taking me so many attempts to view my blog then if I want to look at any messages it takes another load of attempts. Anyway....here is my entry for the Just Magnolia challenge to have animals or insects on your cards. As you can see I have butterflies on mine! I just love butterflies so much. I have made this to give to my friend's little girl for her 4th birthday so it is very girly and covered in flowers and sparkley bits! The tulips I'm loving....my Mum bought me a set she found half price somewhere and there were four tulip buttons in it but to be honest they were very cheap plasticy looking things but I loved the shape so thought I'd cover them in pearlescent glue and now I love them! I wanted her to look like she was stood in a field of flowers.

close up of the tulip button. I've used all sorts for the flower centres, some brads, liquid pearls and some have fluffy pom poms!

The card when it is stood...you can see the flowers inside too so it looks like she is surrounded by flowers!

and this is the inside...
