Flower from a heart & a butterfly

Started my PTI MIM (here) card at the first of the week.  Finally I put all the pieces together into a card today.  The challenge is to make a diecut flower without using a flower die.  I used the large heart die by Memory Box for the first layer by cutting the hearts in 1/2 & mounting them into a circle (not in the order they were cut, if that makes sense).  The small solid butterfly die by Cuttlebug is used for the top layer of the flower.  This double-sided pp is by Colorbok, as is the matching diecut border.  I got them in a close-out for almost nothing!  The PTI greeting is from the Year of Flowers Collection.  Thanks for visiting--it means a lot to me.  Don't forget to check out the DeNami Ravishing Ribbons Blog Hop tomorrow.  I'll give you a hint--my card has ribbon used in a way you've never seen on any of my cards.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
