Fusion - Gold Butterfly

Every other Thursday a new challenge begins today at Fusion Card Challenge.  We're teaming up with CAS(E) this Sketch this time with a gorgeous gold and white inspiration photo and a super clean sketch!   The part I like best about  Fusion - you can choose to be inspired by the photo - or you can work the sketch.  If you want to challenge yourself - work with both.  I like to pick up different elements from the photo and incorporate them into the sketch design.  It's all up to you.
Are you drooling over all that white and gold in the inspiration photo?  How elegant right?   I was smitten at first sight with that gorgeous glittery gold butterfly!  Of course I wanted to replicate it with some pretty die cuts.  I cut a background butterfly in vellum, and the top detailed cut from glittery gold paper.  I only attached it to the card in the center (the body of the butterfly) so the wings are free floating.  I wanted to make my card elegant like that lovely place setting,  so I embossed my background paper and added lots of gold. 
If you need a little more inspiration you are sure to find it this week - with both the Fusion DT and the CAS(E) This Sketch DT playing along - you're sure to find something that will totally knock your socks off!  I hope you find some time to play and join us!

If there's drooling to be done (and there is!) it's at this stunner of a card! Love to study your layering details, just can't get enough. My favorite way to attach a butterfly, btw, as if to float away!
