Things With Wings & Three Colour Challenge

Hi everyone!  Hope you're all safe and these gales from the hurricane haven't done any damage to your property.  Our garden has been bashed, and our fencing blew down on one side, we got away lightly...so far! We have a fairly large garden, and fortunately the shrubs and trees have protected the other fencing. We're very high up here, we can see right across the Pennines.  It seems to be calming down a little just now.  I won't go to bed until it has.  It's scary! 
While we were outside trying to prop up the fencing something blew into my right eye and scratched it.  It's constantly weeping, so I've been making this card with one eye closed - LOL!




I cut my butterfly in fuschia and black card on the Silhouette. It's quite large 7.5 x 8.00 cm (3"x31/2"). I used gems for the body and made wire antenna. The ribbon was some that came wrapped around my new PJ's. I rolled the rose from fuschia and grey paper, and the sentiment is also fuschia, black and grey, with a few little fuschia gems.
I'm entering it into this weeks challenge over at Papertake Weekly - Things With Wings.
And at  CR84FN where you have to use these three colours...

Thank you for stopping by xx
