Less is more Challenge - Ombre

I thought I would start the year by trying some challenges, it's really something I ought to do more often :-)  The LIM challenge is to make an ombre card, gradual shading from light to dark, or vice versa.

I chose to make butterflies in graduated shades, using a Martha Stewart punch.  The butterflies are attached at the centre only, so the wings can be free, and I added white pearls for the bodies. The sentiment is from Hobbyart. 
I might do some more of these, they could be birthday, get well, best wishes.....
