Crafty Calendar Challenges DT Card

Good morning it's the first Friday of June and that means it's time for another Crafty Calendar Challenge. This month the challenge has been set as a theme and that theme is 'Bugs & Beastie's' with the added option of 'Wings'. I had completely forgotten that I hadn't made my card for this month, how naughty, so had to quickly come up with something yesterday afternoon and to make matters worse I had no bugs or beasties as such. I could manage the wings though as I had seen a beautiful svg file which I knew I would use one day, and turned it into the shape of this butterfly card which I then added another layer to to create the 3d wing's. The butterfly file was created by Beth aka My Cricut Scrapbooking and I used my cricut along with Sure Cuts Alot 2 to turn it into a card.
I used Core'dinations Gemstone cardstock to make this which has the most gorgeous shimmer to it but the photo just does not do it justice.

Here it is from a front view:-
