Embossed butterflies.

Another new technique for me. Its called Inlaid Embossing, and the effect is really nice. The butterflies are attached to the card stock before embossing. The embossing is done with Cuttlebug folder "Birds and Swirls" This card was made with Color Core Core'dinations paper. The idea for the matching envelope was from Pals Paper arts. The envelop flap is embossed to match the card, but doesn't show up well in the picture. You can see it on the enlarged picture.
It fits the following challenges;
