Monarch on Mesh

I was inspired by Less is More's metallic challenge, so I had a strip of mesh out from that challenge and then on to Clean and Simple's sketch challenge...so here is the sketch and what I came up with:

I have taken a bit of liberty with the Clean and Simple sketch...something I rarely do, but this all just "fit"!
I used  Sizzix leaf die to make the leaves, a Martha Stewart butterfly punch, and a sentiment from Papertrey's Iconic Images set.  I punched an extra butterfly and put a piece of orange paper behind the extra and cut along the edges of the punched butterfly....thus the orange background.  Super simple...and got to use more of the metal mesh I was given:)!!
Thanks for the sketch inspiration and ladies at Less is More for the metallic challenge...what fun:)!!!  Thanks for looking, hope you have a great night:)!!
