Fluttering Butterflies

Spring has sprung and so have the Butterflies! Happy with the way this card came out using a simple sketch and an assortment of embossing folders. I started with a very, very light lavender color card base and used very deep purple color cardstock for contrast. All cardstock is from my Scrap Box.
Light purple cardstock - Embossed with a Cuttlebug "Chicken Wire" folder.
White Panel - Embossed with a Darice "Butterflies" folder.
Butterflies - Are both Martha Stewart punches, embossed with a "Swiss Dots" Cuttlebug folder. Added purple gems to their heads and colored the small Butterflies with a "Purple Steel" Crayola marker, that gives the small Butterflies a metallic look. I triple-layered all the Butterflies to make them thicker.
Corner punches - Used a Recollections punch on the large panel and a Fisker punch on the white panel.
Used a flower lace strip under the panel.
Thank you for following TurtleBug's Trail
