Butterfly Anniversary Card

I made this card for an upcoming anniversary of a couple in my church. I combined the following 5 challenges to make this card:

Creative Card Crew ~ SCALLOPS

Paper Play ~ FAVORITE EMBELLISHMENT

Doodle Palace ~ Create a CELEBRATION CARD - other than a birthday - be it anniversary, wedding, engagement, etc. And since celebrations are a time for tinsel and sparkle, the card must include glitter, rhinestone accents, or bling.

Flutter By Wednesday ~ Create a card with a BUTTERFLY or FAIRY on it.

Think Ink Tuesday ~ Create a card using the provided SKETCH:


Here is my finished card. It is hard to tell, (the picture didn't come out very good) but the three dots in the bottom corner of the card are three purple gem stones. I added a line around the cardstock that my 3 butterflies are stamped on to give it a finished look. I also added lines coming out of the butterflies to represent the "flight path" of the butterflies.
Supplies
Image: Unity Stamp Co. ~ Bevy of Butterflies stamps
Ink: Whispers Ink Pad ~ Whispers Lilac & Black
Pen: Zig Writer ~ Plum Mist
Punch: Martha Stewart Doily Lace Edge Punch
Ribbon: Making Memories ~ MM Kids Trims ~ Emma
Gems: Purple
Sentiment: Fiskars Celebrate Clear Stamp Set
DP: ???
