Embossed Butterfly

Good morning all!
Well it's another gorgeous day here in Bolton, which is fantastic and I love it, but it's no good for crafting......I am torn between enjoying the weather and sitting in my craft room! Going to have to find something I can make in my garden so I don't have to choose!
Anyway, here is the card I made on Monday night for LIM Acetate challenge, but couldn't photograph as it was still wet. I didn't get chance to post yesterday as I spent a fab day with Gemma, and a lovely couple of hours last night with Nikki, so when I got home, I just went to bed!

It was really difficult to make without leaving marks and creases on it! All because of the black background! Anyway, The Butterfly stamp is one I picked up in Harrogate but can't remember who from. I heat embossed it onto the acetate with WOW embossing powder, then wrapped it round the black card blank. I stuck it using glossy accents, then covered where the glue is with a couple of black gems. I finished with sentiment stamped in white ink directly onto the card. Oh and it was really hard to photograph!

The final technique I'm going to try today is embossing the acetate with a folder......if I can bear to stay indoors!
