Embossed/debossed Butterflies

I've had this butterfly embossing folder in my stash for ages.  Heck, had the butterfly dies too.  All gathering dust.  Shame on me!  I intended to use the embossed side on the outside of the card but put it through wrong then decided that I could totally use it anyway.  I love how the card is decorated inside and out.  I used a white pigment pen to give the illusion of lacier smaller butterflies on the front.

I wanted to see what this might look like with colored butterflies using up patterned paper but am rushed for posting time so faked it in Photoshop.  Totally different look, huh?

The Details:  PTI white cardstock and sentiment, scrap black cardstock, Memory Box butterfly dies, Glossy Accents, Darice embossing folder, Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakura Gelly Roll white pen

I'm entering this in The Crafting Cafe CAS, Jellypark Things with Wings, Little Tangles #32 Inside of a Card, Simply Create Too #56 Shop in Your Stash, Paperminutes #311 Black/White
