Red Gold Butterfly

Good Evening Friends and Fellow Crafter's

Today's card is made using Imagination Craft's Butterfly Border Decoupage Stamp, the daisy background card.

I stamped the butterfly image onto the card using Versamark and heat embossed using gold embossing powder. 
I then stamped the butterflies onto some acetate and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I then cut them out and covered the reverse of the acetate with Ruby Gold embossing powder.
I stamped the butteflies again this time onto a piece of the Daisy background card.  Cut out the inner sections of the open - winged butterfly and glued in position on the acetate butterfly.
For the closed winged butterfly I cut out the outer sections and glued that onto the acetate butterfly, I then adhered these with silicone glue.
I glued a piece of the left over stamped scroll border to the bottom right hand corner.  
Added some red ribbon and a bow with three red rhinestones.
The flower is die cut from white card and coloured with distress ink, punched out a cornflower using some of the left over acetate which was covered with sparkle medium and glued tot he larger flower and added a button to the centre.
