It's really hard to tell from the scan; but the butterfly image is dry embossed. I used a stylus tool & wet the image to emboss it w/o a stencil. Then I added a bunch of dimensionals to the back to keep it puffed out.

I'd love to see your card in person as I'm sure the photo doesn't do it justice as far as the embossing goes. And, while I'm there to see your card, would you give me a lesson? ;o) You did a great job coloring the butterfly.
