Get Those Embossing Folders Out

The latest challenge at Artful Times is to use two or more embossing folders so I've made a card using three.

I started by embossing the edge of my card with a Sizzix/Alterations butterfly die, I sponged distress ink over the butterflies. I adhered paper from my stash. I used a Cuttlebug happy birthday folder to emboss some Kraft-Core card and I sanded the raised bits. Next I used some Distress ink to ink my Cuttlebug rose folder before embossing the card. I cut it to size and tied some ribbon round it. For the butterfly I used a Marianne die and added a large gem.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges.
