Butterflies & Rainbows

This is the first card I've done recently just for fun and not for anything specific other than that I just got the new butterfly embossing die from Stampin Up this week and was desperate to have a shot of it - today's card is the outcome. The design is really simple - I've relied a lot on the backing paper which is a small part of a 12 x 12 sheet of scrapboooking paper by K&Co and the fabulous sentiment which is a rubber stamp from Inkadinkado. To finish it off I inked the edges of the butterflies and added some tiny iridescent crystals from MeiFlower, popping them all up with foam pads.

These are the challenges I am entering:
