DT card for craft-room challenge 'Butterflies'

Well teh two weeks have flown by again and we are back for another challenge at the craft-room.
This fortnight our theme is 'butterflies' and I took the chance to use one of the stamps I have in my collection that I haven't used in years!  The stamp is a medallion stamp, but it doesn't say on the stamp whomade it so if anyone know I would love to hear so I can give them a mention! So stop on over to craft-room challenge and join us again :o)

I have kept it fairly simples this time, I embossed the base layer of black card withswirls, then layered it in gold mirror card. I used some sticky roibbon for my stash accross the bottom.

Side view to show the layers :o)

the next layer the stamp has been stamped with  versa mark and heat embossed with gold powder. The layer has been mounted onto more gold mirror card and has 4 brads, one in each corner.

I have then gittered all the layers of the butterfly with varying shades of green, and added some mini gems.

I hope you like it :o)

I will be entering this card into the following challenges

Thanks for stopping by
