Picture This 16 Butterfly on Sunflower

Outlines challenge this week ( http://outlineswithkathy.blogspot.com) was to incorporate a picture in your design.  I'd recently seen a technique that took multiple copies of a photograph and used them to create a mock "iris fold" card.  This sunfower grew from a seed knocked out from a birdfeeder and seemed perfect to use it to create my challenge entry.  Lots of time later, the Outlines butterfly was stamped on yellow and cut out, wings folded up and glued to the photo frame.  The layers of the flower and the layers of the frame were attached to a white cardbase that had been embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.
