Trio of Butterflies Shaker card

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a card I made using some of my favourite Stampin' Up products and obviously we all know butterflies are my absolute favourite! :-) I started off with a panel of white cardstock. I punched a butterfly out of the centre with my stampin up punch, then created two butterflies for either side by stamping matching butterflies and cutting these with the same punch. I then shaped them to make them 3D, added pearl bodies and coated them with Mod Podge to keep their shape. I then stamped the same butterfly image onto heat resistant acetate and used clear sparkle embossing powder to raise the pattern. I placed this acetate behind my aperture and then made a shaker card element by adding glitter between the acetate and the printed paper I placed behind (carefully so the pattern on the paper was symmetrical like real butterflies). I added a border of cardstock, then made my sketch with papers and cardstock from the same collection. I then added small pearls to decorate.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
