Variation on a theme

Hi everyone,

The card I'm sharing with you today is a variation on my recent theme of butterflies and embossing. You can see a couple of the previous cards HERE and HERE. Today's is, perhaps a little unbelievably, the first stepper card I've created in YEARS! So much so that I had to remind myself how to create it, and in doing so I followed THIS great tutorial from Christina at Flowers, Ribbons and Pearls. Thanks Christina!

I've created it in two subtly different shades of purple, with snippets of the slightly lighter shade used for the smaller panels and the small punched butterflies. The design is completed with a small gold peel off sentiment and I really hope that the recipient loves it as much as I do :)
