Flight of the Butterfly/Priceless expansion card instructions

Everyone at stamp camp this month loved this butterfly expansion card. I told them I would post the measurements on my blog, so here they are. I reposted a picture of the inside of my card here, because I love it when I have a camp, and one of my customers comes up with something to make my card ever better. I originally had the background all in Celery, except for the sentiments, but as you can see I added some Mambo and Turqouise flowers. I think it added a nice touch, what do you think. Here is the original post:

Cutting Instructions:
Tempting Turquoise: 2 pieces 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
Confetti White: 1 piece 8 1/2" x 5 1/4" and
2 pieces 5 1/4" x 4 1/8"
Melon Mambo: 1" x 5 1/2"

Score the 8 1/2" x 5 1/4" Confetti White paper at
1/4", 2 1/4", 4 1/4", 6 1/4" and 8 1/4"
the 2 1/4" and 6 1/4" are mountain folds
the 1/4", 4 1/4" and 8 1/4" are valley folds.

All stamping will be done with classic inks. Stamp two Turquoise, two Mambo and two Razzleberry butterflies from the Flight of the butterfly stamp set and punch out using the butterfly punch. Stamp one Turquoise, one Mambo and one Razzleberry butterfly from Priceless and cut out.
 Attach the two smaller pieces of Confetti White to the larger piece by gluing them on the 1/4" folds on each end.  Glue as close to the fold, but not over.
Stamp the swirly sentiment from Priceless close to the the 2 1/4" fold, using Tempting Turquoise. This will will be the flight pattern of your Turquoise butterfly. Stamp the swirl stamps from Priceless all the way across the center of your card (except where the sentiment is). Stamp the word Pricless using Tempting Turquoise, on the end panel, leaving room for your signature. Randomly stamp the Circle with flower in it and small flower, from Pricless, using Certainly Celery. Randomly Stamp the large flower, from priceless using Melon Mambo, and the smaller flower in Tempting Turquoise.
Attach the Mambo and Razzleberry Pricless butterflies on the first panel using Stampin' Dimensionals. Attach the Turqouise butterfly by gluing his right wing only, just to the left of your 2 1/4" mountain fold, centering over the sentiment. The right wing will not be glued down. Glue the right wing only of your Mambo puched butterfly on the 6 1/4" mountain fold. Glue the Razzleberry butterfly on the same fold, but glue down the left wing only.
Stamp one of the Turquoise pieces with the En Francais background stamp using Tempting Turquoise. Flip over and attach the Turquoise pieces on each end lining up one side at the fold, make sure the front (stamped) piece is attached on the right side.  You will have a 1/8" border showing on the top, bottom and outside edge, on the inside of the card. Wrap a piece of ribbon around the Melon Mambo piece and attach to the front of the card.  Attach one Turquoise, Mambo and Razzleberry punched butterfly to front of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. Stamp one butterfly on envelope.
You are done! Enjoy your card.
