Happiness! - Embellish Mag Challenge

Hi!  I'm sharing a card that I created for the Dry Embossing, Color Trends Challenge over at Embellish  They have gorgeous inspiration photos...always.  This challenge requires us to use dry embossing on our creation.
I knew that I wanted to use purple as the main panel of my card.  And that's where I would use dry embossing.  So.  That part was easy.  As for the rest of the card.  Ha!  I die cut and punched so many butterflies.  Then I played with placement.  Again, then again.  lol

Finally, I'm pleased with the final results :)  I added a few gems as a finishing touch.  I just now realized that my purple card stock is darker than the purple in the inspiration graphic.  Well, too late to start over now...

This card was created for a customer of mine, along with a coordinating pair of paper crafted shoes.  So, just for "kicks" (pun intended), I'm including a couple of photos of the set.

If you've been following my blog for a while, you've seen quite a few pairs of my paper crafted shoes lately.  I hope you aren't tired of seeing them!  Even though they're labor intensive, they really are so much fun to make.  Especially embellishing them!  It seems the more shoes I make, the more ideas I have.  And that's fun. :)
Thank you for taking the time to stop by!  I appreciate your visit and your comments.
