I made this card to combine 2 challenges. The Speedy the Cat's Challenge #5 for Mark's Finest Papers is to create a card with a silhouette image, and the Stars and Stamps mid-week Color Challenge is "A Pot of Gold" - which is to add some gold to your card without using glitter.
I started with a piece of scrap dsp and stamped some Inque Boutique silhouette images with Versafine Onyx Black and embossed them with clear ep. I used the Nestabilities Blossom dies and some Moss textured cardstock The card was partially embossed using a Tim Holtz texture fades embossing folder (Damask) and I left the bottom smooth to add the gold embossed sentiment from MSE. I cut a 2-1/4" piece of white cardstock and smeared it with Versamark ink, then covered it completely with gold embossing powder and heat set it. Then I put it into the butterfly embosslit from SU! and created those tiny butterflies. A piece of moss ribbon and a little bow created with the bow-easy, and this card was done.
Thanks for stopping by and may your Thursday be a great one!
