A Newlywed Butterfly

This card is for a couple of friends of mine who just got married in the Dominican. I was inspired by a framed art piece I found on Pinterest with a Gold Embossed Vellum Swallowtail. I think it was beautiful, so I used that as inspiration as I created this Classy & Elegant card for The Card Concept Butterfly Challenge and My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge 170. I colored on the velum with Coastal Cabana  ink after the butterfly was embossed. I flipped and made the sketch off-center. I liked the little touch of sparkle with the glimmer paper and I think the roses add a perfect touch.

Here is a close-up of some of the elements on my card.

Here are the sketch and concept I used for this card.

Thanks for stopping by,
