Darkroom Door - Butterfly

Hello friends, today's card has a beautiful butterfly from Darkroom Door - I love the size of it and how beautifully it colours.

I have coloured the image using Chameleon Pens, it has been cut out using Spellbinders Labels.  I have layered dots using a variety of Chameleon Pens to add a shadowing effect.  This has been layered onto an embossed Spellbinders Labels 17 - embossed using the Spellbinders Horse Hair folder by Tammy Tutterow using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.  This in turn has been popped up onto a precut card base using Labels 17, also using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

A button has been glued to the centre of the butterfly and a Want2Scrap pearl added to the button - such an easy but effective embellishment

This card is for the following challenges:
