Inkspirational #172

G'day everyone! Today starts the new challenge over at Inkspirational. I am actually the hostess for this challenge and decided to choose the following - Use Vellum!

Here is my card -

I started with a decent piece of vellum and sprinkled two different lots of embossing enamel. I heated from underneath and ended up with a beautiful embossed piece that I die cut my butterflies from.

I die cut the butterflies again in black cardstock to overlay them on.

I hope to see you over at Inkspirational!

I would also like to enter my card into the following challenges -

Grab it!
