LIM - Coloured Card Blank

Well you could knock me down with a feather!
I finally have a card for the LIM challenge.
 And it's on time!!!
This card came together so quickly
and exactly how I had pictured it in my head.
 That never happens to me!! Lol.
The theme this week is
I immediately found a lavender card blank and dug out an old
Stampendous butterfly stamp that Ive had for years.
 I think it was one of the first stamps I bought.
I stamped it in PTI Plum Pudding ink and used various shades of purple Promarkers
to colour the flowers and tint the wings.
It looked a bit lifeless so I used some silver Liquid Pearls.
 I hope the pearls are ok!
 I know one layer is supposed to have minimal embellishments!
As I was digging I found another butterfly stamp that is quite similar
and made a matching tag.
So  there you have it! An on time challenge card! Lol.
Enjoy the rest of your day :)
