A Rainbow of Butterflies

I know it's usually called a flight of butterflies but I reckon a rainbow of butterflies is more descriptive. I like the transformation idea here too.

I made the rainbow using watered down distress inks on card, then die cut.  The card is really a dark blue but looks almost black in the photo (maybe because its artificial light?).

Butterfly die:
Border punch: Fiskars
Ribbon, gems
