Make It Monday #217 with Laurie Creating Custom Borders

My card for  MIM 
Using other stamps to create your own border.  I wanted to use something different, hence the butterflies.  Not sure if it makes a good border.
Ok, so first of all I put the butterflies on the top of the card and then realized it needed to be underneath the top section.  I was able to get the butterflies off without much problem but the backs of the butterflies were not so easy to get the tape off so I opted to put them directly on the back of the card.   So a little improvising and I made it work.

PTI's Life is Beautiful, Heart 2 Heart #10, Bigger Blooms for sentiment, Bitty Dots vellum paper
Hero Arts Ombre Inks for butterflies.  The stripe is ink to paper.  And some bling
