Butterfly Letterpress

Hello there and happy Sunday to you! Today I have a card to share using Jennifer McGuire's technique of letterpress with wood veneers. I thought it was a great idea as I have a few wood veneers but don't really use them that much. The result is a lovely debossed image with a subtle but pretty wood texture to it.
 

I have taken the SC wood veneer butterflies, applied purple pigment ink on to them placed them ink side down on to the cardstock and run this through my Cuttlebug using the same sandwich I use for embossing with dies. I then took the PTI Fillable Frames stamp set and stamped the Birthday Wishes sentiment with Veramark ink and then embossed with silver embossing powder. I have added a few rhinestones and then popped this panel up on to some PTI Plum Pudding CS and then on to a white card base.
