Shimmery Butterfly

Today's card was made for one of my parents' neighbours who will turn 90 soon. All of the stamps I used are from the CCSR 'Doodles' set by Papermania, which I stamped and embossed in pearl violet on lilac card, before colouring them with Cosmic Shimmer pigments (one of my Christmas presents). I used my Cuttlebug 'Floral Fantasy' folder to emboss some pearlised card, and cut out the mats using various Nestie shapes. The numbers were cut using my Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet.

Challenges for this card:
I'll be back later with my DT card for the first Pile It On! Challenge of 2011.
