Pop-up Butterflies

Over at Stampin' Dymonz' Scrap Shack - The Village, we have a little group that explores a different type of fold for cards each week. This week is the turn of a pop-up card. There are a few different types of pop-up card showcased over at Splitcoast Stampers.
This is the card that I made. It features a load of butterflies, both on the stamp used (unknown origin) and the MS punched variety. This is also being one of 3 I am making for work collegues' birthdays coming up soon.
The stamped image was coloured using a mixture of DI and promarkers.
The BP is just plain cs that was dry embossed with a sizzix plate and a gold ink pad rubbed over it.
Ribbons are from stash. The bow is held in place by a home made ribbon rose. The sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday was followed to produce this.

The plain pale green was stamped using some foliage stamps from Lavinia Stamps. The pop-up mechanism has some sizzix die leaves adhered to it and some MS punched butterfles. These have been given a light brush over with the same gold pad as the front.

I am entering this into the following challenge
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 110-32 - Their Sketch
By The Cute and Girly - July challenge - things with Wings
