Bronze foil and butterfly

My blogging friend Gail showed a lovely card on her blog here http://scrappintimes-gail.blogspot.ca/ and of course I had to copy her style !!  So off to Michaels I went with my little coupon.  Couldn't find the Metalics that she used so I bought a 6" x 6" pad of Foil Cardstock.
The vellum butterfly I have used before but this one was destined to become vellum flowers.  It looked so good on the foil so I fussy cut it and popped it up with brown fun foam that I ran through the Xyron.
This is a photo taken in the (homemade) light box and it does show the true color of the foil.  It also shows that the butterfly is popped up  and some shadowing. :)  The folder is a 5" x 6.5" Cuttlebug and that made the card 5.5" x 7".
Since the foil pad has a little hole for hanging and the folder was so big I had to emboss another piece of the foil and fussy cut a flower to cover it.  lol
Ok, for those of you who want to see where, you will have to click on the pic and it is on the left side.  lol
Have a Blessed day.

Wow, this is gorgeous! I've had foil for ages, but so far, I've never used it. I love it with the embossing and beautiful butterfly, and the matching envelope is perfect!
