Pink Black and White Butterfly Tag Wedding

So, here is the second of the two wedding cards I made. This one was very highly influenced by Laura Bassen and you can see her version of this card here over on her blog.
Ideally I would have liked to have used a grey patterned paper in the background, but it wasn't until after I'd made it that I realized I actually had some I could have used! Typical!!!

Anyway, this card began with a sheet of the black and white striped paper from the Papermania Clare Curd The Big One paper pad. The panel was adhered to the front of an A5 card blank.
A piece of card was then covered with a piece of the pink floral patterned paper from the HOTP Wedding paper pad an die cut using the Sizzix Tags #3 Bigz die. A Papermania black eyelet was added.
Using a sheet of white glitter paper, the Seville Buckle by Memory Box was die cut and added to the tag.
Another piece of card was then covered with the pink mesh-effect paper also from the Wedding paper pad and die cut using a leaf die from the Spellbinders Foliage die set. The two leaf branches were added behind a butterfly which was die cut using the Willoughby Butterfly die by Memory Box with a heavyweight vellum. This was then 3d'd to the tag.
The sentiment panel was created using a pre-printed panel in the Wedding paper pad and stamped using the Mr & Mrs stamp from the American Crafts Wedding stamp set.
Black and white Baker's twine was threaded through the black eyelet on the tag and it was added to the front of the card.
For the inside of the card, the same patterned paper was used, and a second tag was created, this time from white card. 
More leaves were die cut using the same patterned paper and the sentiment, also from the Wedding stamp set was stamped onto a panel of patterned paper from the Wedding paper pad.
On the reverse of the card, a couple of small Sizzix Sizzlits Scalloped tags were added, stamped with the date of the wedding. Behind the 'Handmade By' stamp was a label created using a die from the Spellbinders Parisian Accents die set and paper from the Wedding paper pad.
 To complement the card, a tag was also created for the gift. This time a length of lace was added and a sentiment panel from the Wedding paper pad was added across the butterfly die cut.
