Gold Foil Butterflies for a Golden Anniversary

I made this card as an anniversary card, but when it was all done I realized it would work just as well for a wedding card. That "happy together" sentiment fits both occasions, don't you think?

Actually the card was intended as a Golden Anniversary card, so of course I tried to put as much gold on it as possible! The Tip Top Taupe paper was the perfect base color, its a good match for the gold heat embossing without introducing another color into the palette. The fancy swirly leafy filigree shape is from a set called Timeless Textures and it ended up being a good background filler that blended in an elegant way with the butterflies.

Speaking of butterflies, don't these look like they just flew down and landed on this card? I love Stampin'UP!'s Gold Foil paper, its so stiff and makes perfect punched pieces like these butterflies.  The trick to getting this "just landed" look is to gently crease the wings upwards and put my adhesive just down the middle of the body.

I like to add some sparkle whenever I can and I've found that 3 of the small rhinestones are a perfect fit for the length of the butterfly body. Here's a complete list of supplies used on this card.
