Gilded butterfly

Hi everyone, I finally got some time to make a few cards today!

The theme at Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge is gilding.
I diecut this butterfly from a scrap of black card and rubbed metallic gold paint on the outer edges.
I rubbed the same paint on the vellum base. 

At Addicted to Stamps & More the theme is CAS.

Using up snippets means I can also visit the girls at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Pixies Crafty Workshop

Dies: Poppystamps theo and whidbey butterflies; Memory Box prima label.
Other: Kaisercraft florish embossing folder; Craf-T rub on metallic paint; 
sentiment sticker; vellum.

Thanks for visiting,
