Butterfly in autumn colours

So I finally went for it and bought a gelli plate! Only a 6x6 as I don't see me creating massive pieces. I also got this lovely set of paints a bargain from Amazon and a lot cheaper than a well know online tv company ahem, if you know what I mean. It reminds of me of Christmas when I was a child and you got things like this in a box set.
So I had a play and to begin with I thought this is not for me I can't do it - but I tried again and now I want to play all the time with it LOL! 
This is my first attempt with a few different stencils and a butterfly cut with a Tattered lace die from some beautiful bronze mirri card. It was inspired by Mrs A's Butterfly challenge, which I finally got to enter again so I'm off to link up there now.

Hi Linby, I just knew that if you got a Gelli plate you would fast become addicted. Your card is fabulous too - the butterfly is the perfect embellishment for your print. Elizabeth xx

I love your gorgeous butterfly which looks perfect on your Card. Your gelli print is stunning. I'm still resisting from buying a gelli plate but I'm wavering! Thankyou for fluttering by #15. Hugs Mrs A. (Butterfly challenge).

You've made a marvelous background with the gelli & your new tools. I've only had one play with my gelli, but I'm seeing so many wonderful backgrounds using it. Must get back to it soon, and quit hopping around techniques. This is a lovely print and your filigree sparkling butterfly sets it off to perfection. Enjoyed seeing your card at the Butterfly Challenge. TFS
