Norma is 90 - Step card with Kanban papers

I recently purchased a fairly large pack of papers by Kanban.  They are elegant -  black, gold, cream, white, and I am enjoying finding ways to use them.  I am also trying to discover ways to make step cards, using purchased pre-cut card bases.  (Next, I need to learn how to upload pictures rather than scans!).  For this card, I used a 4.25 x 5.5 piece.  I cut the edge strip on either side, and used for the edge of this card.  The remaining center section provides a background for the butterfly, and is the card that is raised when the step card is displayed.  There were 2 left over 1x1 pieces, and they are on the part that folds under.  I used letter dies for the special greeting at the bottom.  The large butterfly is a part of the Kanban collection.    For the inside - I used a coordinating piece and cut it to fit the inner part.  I used shimmery  cs for the computer generated sentiment. I distressed with Tim Holtz distress ink.  I hope you will let me know what you think.
