Shimmer and butterflies

The HB background (Cuttlebug) is on silver shimmer cs - it looks more like metallic here than it really is.  This stamp by ODB is one I use a lot - I do  not really have just one "go to" stamp.  I tried using a variety of colors for the butterflies - I now realize I prefer a subtler result!  What do you think?  I used a Darice butterfly embossing folder for the smaller panel, and a Cuttlebug border die.  The flower is Petaloo, and the leaves are from a Sizzix die.  The mat is a medium purple.

Love the idea of two different embossed but same papers. Very effective.
