Stampin' Up Beautiful Day in Peach

In my previous post I showed a card with the same butterfly stamp but all in purple.  These cards were inspired by the butterfly card made by Annette Elliott.  

The Irish myth about the butterfly is that is represents brightness and lightning of the Gods.  I chose to emboss the butterfly with gold embossing powder to make it resemble the gold in fire and lightning.

I'm entering this card in two Simon Says Stamp challenges:

Wednesday:  Add some texture (embossing folder)

Products used:  Stampin' Up Beautiful Day, We R Memory Keepers Woven embossing folder, gold embossing powder, watercolor pencils, Sue Wilson Stitched Flags, designer paper from my stash

Thanks for stopping by ~ Ann
