Mom's Butterfly card

I'm eagerly awaiting the Design Seminar which begins in less than an hour on UStream.  While I'm waiting to learn more about Texture & Dimension, I've been practicing.  I'm curious to see if my ideas are correct.

This is a premade card base by DCWV.  I had difficulty finding paper and ribbon that didn't clash.  Who knew there were so many shades of brown.
I chose to stamp (Stampendous) on Valley Forge Parchment Paper - Olde Natural with Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  The Sentiment is computer generated and it's hard to get the right color with the printer.
The base card has blue dots in the center of each 'puff', so I chose blue as an accent color.  The butterfly is punched from pearlescent paper, with an oval pearl from Martha Stewart.  The punch is also by Martha Stewart.  I did pop the sentiment on some dimensional foam tape and the butterfly is only glued in the center, with the wings raised.
