Butterfly Tree

I was originally going to make an apple tree for my fathers birthday, but I decided that a butterfly tree would look nicer. But I have since decided to buy him a cherry tree for his birthday. So I am now going to remove some of the butterflies and make some cherries to replace them.
I made the tree from old book pages. I punched out a flurry of butterflies from some pretty Dovecraft paper, and glued them carefully onto the branches.

I coloured the lovely Phyllis Harris little girl stamp with spectrum noir pencils. I placed her underneath the tree and onto a card base which I then covered in flowersoft.

Thank you so much for looking.

I would like to enter my Butterfly tree into the following challenges
