Embossed Butterfly

My card today is a get well card which I don't find myself making enough of these or better yet I don't send enough of these out to people. I think this card is quite pretty and would cheer up someone's day if they received it. 

The butterfly stamp is by:
and can be found at:

I heat embossed the image with Versa Mark ink and Ranger's platinum embossing powder. Then I colored it in with distress inks, an ink blending tool, and also some nibs all by Ranger Industries. I picked the papers I wanted to use before coloring it in so that when I was finished I fussy cut most of the butterfly out and set it aside while I constructed the rest of the my card front. All of the patterned papers are by Basic Grey. The ribbon is by Pebbles, sentiment by K and Co, rhinestones by TPC Studio and flower sticker by EK Success. The sentiment sticker is on a Spellbinders die cut made of Recollections white cardstock. I hope you like it.

Challenges: Bingo {Image, More than 2 layers, and Die cut}
