Inlaid Butterfly

Hello!
So I've been gone a while… my sister was over from Canada (where she lives) and we had lots of lovely family time together. It was just wonderful.
But now I am back. 
And today I have a card to share that features a bold mix of patterns and colours - a bit different from my usual style! I die cut a Simon Says Stamp's Paulina butterfly from this gorgeous yellow paper from Amy Tangerine's Stitched pad, then die cut a Hero Arts tag from the negative space. After adding stitching to the tag and butterfly, I laid the butterfly back into the negative space on the tag and adhered it in place. A few Smooth Gemstones and a stamped sentiment later and I was done.

The striking black paper is from Pebbles Homemade pad.

What do you think? Should I stick to my usual pink and aqua?? :)
More to share soon. I will see you then.

This is a lovely card. I like the idea of die cutting a tag from the negative space from another die :)
