OTWC and CCC: purple fun

Blending a couple challenges in this card. 
The colors were inspired by the Off the Wall Craftiness Challenge #47 while the design was inspired by the City Crafter Challenge #45: Nothing To It (no ribbon, button, flowers, etc). 
Here's my flat "thank you" card. 
I stamped the butterflies and colored them with my Prismacolor pencils.  Normally, I would have paper pieced them, popped them and added wire for the antenna, but I had the pull the reins back for the challenge.  I am really happy with how the colors worked with the kraft paper and how the butterflies pop without pop dots!

Here's the inside:

City Crafter Challenge:                                           

Off the Wall Craftiness:

Stamps: Stampin Up "A Greeting for all Reasons" and "Short & Sweet", flourishes from a Target clearance
Ink: Memento
Paper: cardstock from stash
Other: Prismacolor pencils, glitter glue

Thanks for coming by!
