I wish the embossing on this card showed up a little better.  It's a really neat bird on a flowering branch.  The turquoise card stock with the embossing already done was given to me by my friend, Kris, when we met in Des Moines this summer.  I added the white butterfly from an SU punch.  The ovals were also made with an SU punch.  Sentiment is a retired Hero Arts stamp.
To emphasize the black oval, I added tiny black metal embellishments to the butterfly, flowers and the bird's eye.  I wasn't sure whether to add the layer to a black or white card base but as you can see I decided to use the white one.
If you have questions, let me know.  Thanks for coming by!

Very pretty, Vicki! What a great idea to add the gems. Funny that we both have those cards on our blogs today, after a month and a half!

I love the gems too. It really makes the image stand out.
