3 Challenges, One Card!

I just love how this card turned out even if I do say so myself. I managed to get 3 challenges into one card also. That really helped with a really busy weekend. For the card I used discontinued stampin up cardstock Vintage Violet. The designer paper was some out of Nanas Nursery Baby Boy paperstack by DCWV. ( I cant believe how much purple their is in the Baby Boy stack). I overlayed the purple polka dot with some CTHM flowered vellum. The butterflies and leaf are stampin up dies. Then the fence is a martha stewart punch. I also used nestibilites for the layered VV and white. I ran the white thru the cuttlebug with the swiss dots embossing folder.
I used some misc flowers I had with some purple brads. I colored the image with my copic markers.
Now for the challenges. The first challenge is from Magnolia Down Under- embossing, any kind.
So I used dry embossing with the embossing folder. Then Just Magnolias - In The Garden, bugs, butterflys, flowers. Fussy and Fancy Fridays - wings, monochromatic, mostly all purples but I did throw in some green for the leaves.
I hope you all enjoy this card as much as I do.
Happy Stamping and thanks for looking!
