S.O.T.C. Mystery Swap Reveal!

Going on 4 years now a group of card making gals on Splitcoaststampers website have an monthly swap called the Sisterhood of the Traveling Cards.  We've gone through several transitions over the years.  Some of the sistahs have left and new ones have joined our group.  Each month one of the sistahs hosts the swap and decides the theme.  Our beloved Kadie who started and facilitates this swap is the host for September/October and she sent a little note to each sistah giving them their "mystery" theme.  Anybody want to take a guess as to my theme?  Here's a hint:

Those of you who know me know that I love all things butterflies so it's not surprising that Kadie chose this theme for me.  The main image is from C.C. Designs for All That Scraps' Gingersnaps - Bugga-boo's.  My sweet Bugga-boo is colored with Copic markers with a dash of Stickles on her wings and is layered on top of black cardstock punched with Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch Around The Page punch.  The background layer is embossed with a Cuddlebug butterfly embossing folder.  The butterfly designer paper is from Graphic 45's Botanicabella Collection "Ode to a Butterfly".  The floral d.p. is from Basic Grey...sorry, can't remember the collection.  The inside has butterfly punched border from another Martha Stewart punch.

The layout is based on the sketch challenge for Splitcoaststampers this week.  Here's the sketch:
