Butterflies and CCC Digi Creations Challenge

It's time for the next CCC Digi Creations Challenge (#8), and our fabulous sponsor is Kathryn, of Whimsy Stamps 

I chose the Butterfly Border  set to use, which also has an individual butterfly image in it, which for this card I printed off on pale blue vellum.

I printed the border off on a piece of dp from a Rosie's 6x6 pad, and painted over it with some oyster Twinkling H20.

The centre panel was stamped and silver embossed on some pale mauve card, and sponged with some violet ink before removing it from the die.

The background paper was a pearlised paper, distributed recently at a craft fair as a flier - I simply turned it over and used the unprinted side and embossed it, before mounting the whole on mauve card. 
 The final details were pearls and some liquid pearls on the bodies of the butterflies.
