Butterfly bling

This is for Flutter by Wednesday 199, which is to CASE this lovely card (sadly, this is the last challenge there):

I've used a favourite butterfly stamp, 'swirling wings' by Lindsay Mason, inking with versamark and heat embossing with silver detail powder. The embossing is for: Fashionable stamping 20: embossing and Kaboodle 116: emboss it.

The background black and silver foiled card is actually from a Christmas set, but I think it can be used at any time. I've added some rhinestones to the butterfly and also the lovely little white flower with pearls.

This is also for:

Pile it on 17: sparkle & shine
Tuesday throwdown 95: use some sparkle
Stampin' for the weekend 8: sparkle and shine
Bling it on April: monochrome
Our creative corner: butterflies - I love butteflies - I think they brighten anyone's day
The paper shelter 60: wings and things
Crafty ribbons 17: things with wings
