Vellum butterfly

The new butterfly from Stampin up is so detailed and totally adorable! I stamped it first onto the cardstock and then stamped and embossed it on vellum. The vellum is stiff enough I could even cut out the antenna. When I do this again I'll stamp off three times the close to cocoa sanded background. I think its too dark, it hides the french script too much. Otherwise came out great. I LOVE the new brown, early espresso, that's coming out in July from Stampin up. Its so rich and deep, so much nicer than chocolate chip! I've entered this card into Charisma Cardz challenge which is to use bling, love those pearls!
