A Flutter of Butterflies

Not sure if that is really the correct name for a group of butterflies, but I like it! This card is for Friday MashUp's Challenge #102 to use the sketch below, butterflies and brayering. I will admit that my card didn't use brayering as the first attempt just didn't work when I did use my brayer. It just didn't blend very well, so I used my blender sponge instead rather than keep wasting card and time (which I was short on this afternoon). This is also for Play Date CafĂ©'s Challenge #174 to use these colours, which I interpretted as Perfect Plum, Pear Pizzazz and Glorious Green. An odd colour combo, but it works! And finally this is also for Make It Monday's Challenge #108 to use inked backgrounds. I haven't done a MIM challenge for ages - no idea why not!

And here's my card. The ombre effect is more obvious in real life but my camera didn't/wouldn't pick it up.
