Butterflies for Fall

We made this card last night in Linda Howard's class at Scrapbooking Made Simple.  I really liked the technique and it just went right along with the challenges I intended to enter this week, especially the colors for The Play Date Cafe.  To do the background, we stamped the image with black pigment ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  When it was ready, we used distress inks to add the color.  Then we cut the purple die cut in half to use as a shadow for the image.  The butterflies were fussy cut.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
The Play Date Cafe #151 - Color Challenge

2 Sisters Challenge Blog - Things with wings with optional glitter.  I did not use the glitter
