Mixed dies for Deb

I have been wanting to experiment with this new die set from Couture Creations - the Mariposa Collection.  The border at the left is cut from the shimmery burgundy layer.  The butterfly and small branch are also part of the set.  Birthday is from a Sizzix Happy Birthday die, and Blessings is by Cheery Lynn.  All of these are cut from silver shimmer cs (Recollections).  I added white half pearls (Pizzazz Aplenty).  Oh, yes, I added a second layer for the butterfly - in champagne, offset slightly.  If anyone has seen tutorials for using these dies please let me know!   This is for our daughter - her birthday is later this week.  She will be visiting, along with our son-in-law and granddaughter.
