Embossed Butterfly

This is one of the cards we made at stamp club last month. I love heat embossing! I played around with a few color combinations and this is the one I liked the best. I wanted to try this with Tempting Turquoise but my Tempting Turquoise craft spot was too dry. The butterfly is a piece of chipboard cut with the Beautiful Butterflies Die and the Big Shot™. We covered it with Summer Sun (retired) craft ink and embossed it with clear EP, then covered it with Versamark™ and another layer of clear EP. The swirl from Baroque Motifs was stamped on the butterfly with Chocolate Chip craft ink. Another layer of clear EP then we swiped the Chocolate Chip craft ink pad across the top and embossed another layer of clear EP. The crown is a stamp from Extreme Elements.
The layout of this card is basically a CASE from the Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog.

Okay, this is pretty awesome, but you said turquoise, and now I want it in turquoise. Don't be such a tease, Rhonda!
