Since I had ALL my gold papers and such out I ended up using gold for the next challenge as well. I embossed the gold paper with my Sunburst EF (sorry it is discontinued) Next I stamped the black glossy paper using Versamark with a patterned stamp, then I used the gold embossing powder. I then cut the butterflies from my handmade paper! I added black brilliants for the bodies.
I haven't decided who will get this card so no sentiment yet. I will probably use a die cut Thank You or Happy Birthday in Black glossy paper down in the right hand corner.
This was probably the most challenging card I have ever photographed.
I appreciate you stopping by to take a look!

Peggy, you have never made a card that is not the epitome of class and elegance! I have to agree with Sallie on THIS one! WOW! Love the shimmer, the gold and the stunning butterflies in black and gold! Your photography is awesome too!

Wow - this is so pretty Peggy! I love what Jo said! LOL! This has a spiritual feel to it - really - it makes me think of how we should be looking in the light and going toward it every day of our lives. Really beautiful and into my faves! I vote no sentiment on the front. Hugz!
