Beautiful butterflies: part 2

I was determined that this week I was going to enter my first crafting challenge, so, after staring in awe at my Tim Holtz crowded attic papers for a few days, I got started.

So... here is my entry for the Anything Tim challenge at the Stamp Man Challenge Blog. There's already lots of stunning entries up there so I just hope my simple piece doesn't look too shabby next to them.
I'm also entering it into the Once in a Blue Moon - Gingersnapper's Choice challenge on Gingersnap Creations - inspired by the previous chestnut theme of wings.

I mostly used the crowded attic papers with brushed corduroy distress ink. I love the little 2x2 snippets in the paperstash - so useful when I just wanted a little bit of something to make the text without cutting up the big sheets. Even the letters from 'the' are cut from one of these snippets.
The darker background paper is from the Prime Moulin Rouge range and the 'journey' and 'remember' stamps were from a Making Memories Set.

Hope you like it.
