Polkadoodle Challenge 4 - Monochrome or Monochromatic

Today is like buses - one single blog post all week and then three come along all at once!  My Simply Create Too challenge offering is the post below, and Jellypark will be along shortly, but for now its the turn of Polkadoodles and the theme this week is:

Monochrome or Monochromatic

I've gone way back and used two butterflies from Sugar Birdies which I've then layered onto a larger card blank and the little black scalloped edges are actually lots of heart punches added just so you can see the tops.  I don't have the fancy scalloped edge dies that would have been big enough (I have an old red Sizzix machine which is too small for the Grand Nesties!)  so I have to improvise!

I've seperated each of the layers with foam pads and added a fine line of stickles around the edges.  Also added some half pearls and then black bows from ribbon I found in my stash which I must have had for ages because I can't remember where I got it from!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:
