Watercolour butterflies

I really loved a card made by Amber Daigre for the "A Cut Above" online card class this week - she used partial diecutting to have butterflies flying off the folded edge of her card.  I used the same principle, but off the open edge, not the folded edge.
I wanted to use this week's "Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger Watercolour Butterflies", and The Play Date Cafe's colour scheme of Flamingo Pink and Bright Orange.  Here's what I came up with.
 Now, I don't own a colour spritzer, so that speckled effect on the card front is from me flicking the orange and pink Tombow markers with my index finger.  It's going to take a few days to get all that ink out from under my nail, I think! LOL!
