More Punch Art Challenges!

This week on Paola's Punch Art card swap thread on Splitcoaststampers (http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/cards-f107/%2A-u-postal-yet-%2A-pleezz-check-punched-art-%2Adue-april-2-2012%2A-t545218.html) Melina challenged us to make a card using one punch 3 times.  In addition we needed to emboss our punched pieces either dry or wet embossing.  I love embossing so I decided to do both and here's my creation:

If you've known me long you know I love anything with butterflies so naturally when Melina challenged us to use one punch 3 times I knew I had to use one of my butterfly punches.  This one is from Martha Stewart.  The butterflies were punched out with Stampin' Up's Bermuda Bay paper which had been dry embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder then rubbed with Versamark pad sprinkled with black embossing powder and heat set.  I felt the butterflies needed a little more definition so I punched more in black cardstock, trimmed and adhered to the embossed butterfly punches.  The butterflies were attached to the panel with designer papaer from Graphic 45...Love the colors and the butterflies on that paper!  When it came to choosing a focal image I couldn't resist using C.C. Designs Ima Butterfly.  I was so fortunate to win this cute image in a recent reveal of their Swiss Pixie's stamps for March.  You can see them here: http://www.allthatscraps.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=650_1412  I colored this adorable Ima Butterfly with Copic markers, enhanced her ribbon, wings and boots with Stickles.  The panel was cut with my Spellbinders Nestibilities Labels One, sponged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in antique linen and edged with Copic Marker YR23. The Bermuda Bay panel was embossed with the CB Swiss Dots folder.
The layout for this card is from {FreshlyMade} sketch #28 (FMS28):
