Butterflies Diecuts

I am having so much fun with the thinlet butterflies set from Stampin" Up, They make such beautiful cards. This set will get a lot of use as I love to put butterflies on cards.
The DP is from the watercolor paper from SU from 1 or 2 years ago.. I still have a few scraps of it. I guess I have been hoarding it. A new spring resolution after cleaning out my craft room is to use up a lot of the paper I already have before buying any more. How long do you think that will last? hahaha!! I repeated the curve of the flower petals with a scalloped border in yellow. I wanted the butterfly which is cut from the same DP to stand out so I punched out a flower and backed that with a punched yellow circle. The sentiment is PTI and punched out with SU word window punch and backed with orange with their label punch. The orange pearls were some I found in my embellishments stash.
The Paper Players has a tic-tac-toe challenge. 
I chose the bottoms row of die cut, patterened paper, and yellow. I actually made this card before I looked at the Paper Players blog. Great minds, huh?
