Butterfly Friends Greeting Card: Embedded Embossing Technique

 Here is today's card. 

My wonderful friend Norma and I got to create yesterday and I used her stamps and punches to create the elements of this card.
I used a new color combo (to me).  The base is Purely Pomegranate, the green layer is Pear Pizazz, the light pink butterflies are Pink Pirouette, the dark butterfly is stamped in Purely Pomegranate and the sentiment is stamped in Chocolate Chip.
 I accented each butterfly with two flat back pearls and stamped the one butterfly from Punch Potpourri  in Purely Pomegranate ink.
 The sentiment is stamped in Chocolate Chip and is from Simple Sayings by Stampin Up
 Here is a close up of the stamped butterfly.
 After adhering the butterflies in the pattern I wanted, I ran the piece of green paper (Pear Pizazz) through my Cuttlebug for the embedded embossed look.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
