Embossed & Inspired!

Hi everyone! Happy Friday almost Saturday!! Here is my card for today's Inspiration Challenge on SCS, IC192, Bellacor Vases!!!

I was SO inspired by this GORGEOUS Butterfly Vase from Bellacor! I LOVE the Black/Red/Silver combo, so of course, that is what inspired my card today! The layout from my card is the WSC92!!!

I started by stamping the butterfly from Spread Your Wings by There She Goes in Versamark onto Basic Black and then embossed it with Silver Embossing Powder. I have not heat embossed in ages!!! I then cut out my image with Labels 2 (I think!) from Spellbinders and I then ran my Starlite Silver Dewdrop from Tsukineko around the edges for a border!

I used Real Red for my background and card base, and for the background, I ran my panel of cardstock through the Cuttlebug with the Textile Embossing Folder, and I then ran my Starlite Silver ink pad again to hightlight the design!!

I finished off my card with a double ribbon of Whisper White Organza and Basic Black Grosgrain, both my SU!, and I stamped my sentiment, "I'm Here For You" from the Bloom set by There She Goes, and then punched it with my Word Window Punch.

I, of course, added tons of piercing, and the added two Clear Rhinestone Brads for a bit of pop!!

Thanks SO much for looking!!
