Meljen's Designs Brooke's Butterflies for club Tiets

Hi everybody!!
First I want to thank everybody who left lovely comments on my announcement that I was asked to be a Special Guest Designer for Whimsy Stamps! I'll be officially starting in September but today I already have a card to show you using a digi from Meljen's Designs for Whimsy Stamps. It was actually a free digi from the Dutch "Kaarten maken met Tiets" club if you participated in their july/august digi challenge. So here is the card I created for that challenge using Brooke's Butterflies which is now also for sale for everybody who isn't a part of Tiets' Club.
A close up of the image. The girls, flowers and butterflies were colored with Copics and the background with my Derwent Watercolor pencils. The image was of course 3D paperpieced and stickled up:
