Gold Beautiful Day Card

Today's card uses the Butterflies Thinlits and Beautiful Day stamp set to create this beautiful card.  I often heat emboss several blanks when I have all my embossing supplies out.  So, this gold embossed butterfly was sitting on my desk, just waiting to be used.  I had finished organizing my Blends earlier in the day, which made it so easy to grab the colors I needed to create this wonderful butterfly. Does anyone else find their Blends scattered all over their work space after finishing a card?  I just love working with colors!  Blends are the best.  I never understood why I was always drawn to working with colors until I stumbled upon a color test yesterday.  I learned that not everyone sees colors the same way.  No, I'm not talking about someone who is color blind.  I found an online color test that shows I see more colors than most people see.  Apparently, only a small subset of people are able to see this many different color shades. I know...strange.    

For today's card, I used a basecard of Tangerine Tango, then a layer of Peekaboo Peach, and then a layer of Whisper White.  Under the butterfly image, I cut a square of Whisper White and framed it in Gold Foil paper.   

I used the Butterfly Thinlit to cut a delicate butterfly out of Gold Foil.  For the larger butterfly, I heat embossed the outline in Gold Embossing powder and then colored it with Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie Blends alcohol-based Makers and then added some accents with Light Calypso Coral Blends.  I secured the gold foil butterfly to the large butter fly with Glue Dots.

The sentiment is also from the Beautiful Day stamp set and is stamped in Tangerine Tango.   

I added three large Gold sequins from the Metallics Sequins Assortment, which includes, black, copper, gold, clear and silver sequins in a variety of shapes.

I'm having so much fun with this stamp set.  I was so glad to hear from Stampin' Up! that this is one of the Occasions catalog set that will carry over to the new catalog coming out in June.
