I really liked the Freshly Made Sketches' sketch #271, so I made a second card, but it's past the deadline so won't enter it there. I'm quite sure this layout will be one of my "go to" layots in the future,..
This time I made a card in black, white and gold. I took out my butterfly stamp from Memory Box, heat embossed with gold EP and cut out just a few of them and attched them to a dry embossed panel. I also used a golden paper from my stash. The sentiment stamps are new, the comes with different, separate words so you can compose your own sentiments.

This card is for:
Inkspirational - #126 Flutter
Shopping Our Stash - #287 All That Glitters is Gold

This is such a pretty card. I have a fondness for butterflies and yours look perfect on that dry embossed panel.
As your stamp is new, you could take this over to Darnells NBUS challenge. She has a optional theme, but you can also enter any card with a new, never b4 used item on it.

Hi! CAS class and elegance! The impact of simply adding a dry-embossed panel is huge-- particularly because of the monochrome card... more inspiration from Pia! :) Taking notes. Thank you for sharing with us this week at Shopping Our Stash... lucky us!

Mimi said...

One more thing: great sentiment pack!

Love this card Pia, I just pinned it I agree with you re the layout it's stunning CAS and very cleverly made. Couldn't see earlier one lower down but might've rushed too much.
The contrast with stamped butterflies and dry embossing is great.
Thanks for sharing your inspiration,
