Embossed Butterfly - LIM Take 3 Challenges

Hi lovely bloggers! Hope you all had a good bank holiday weekend!

This week over at Less Is More, Chrissie and Mandi have given us a great challenge of being able to choose three from any of the previous 29 challenges. My three choices are...
Week 5 Pastel Colours
Week 15 Embossing
Week 16 Butterfly


For my pastel colours I used Coredinations distress card in scattered straw for my butterfly, and for my label I used lavender pigment ink. I did both kinds of embossing on my card. I dry embossed the whole card and butterfly with embossing folders. I stamped my WMS label with ink, then embossed with clear embossing powder.
My butterfly is a Sizzix die cut, to which I added some lavender gems for the body, and wire for the antennae.
The sentiment stamp is by Anna Griffin.
 
Thanks for stopping by today!

such a beautiful and delicate card. I just got that folder after seeing you use it before, nearly used it for my card but then thought the bark effect worked better with the dog image.
