Butterfly Charm Purple Card

I made this card for Penny Black Saturday Challenge, Challenge # 132!  I don't qualify for entry into the challenge because I don't have any Penny Black Stamps to use in my designs, but I made the card anyway because it was a fun challenge!
The recipe for this card is:
3 Papers
1 Ribbon
1 Charm

So, here's what I came up with! Another purple card....
Those little bubble embellishment goodies look kind of blue here, but they're actually purple!
I used 1 plain and 2 patterned purple papers and did some layering again.
I tied a pretty organza ribbon around the card and attached a butterfly charm to it with 2 beading loops.
As the main feature of the card, I added a large metal butterfly, and embellished it with some pink and purple blings:
Here's another pic I took using natural light, it came out much better! (just excuse the backround...):
I think I should take my photos in the garden from now on. :)
