Metallic Butterflies

     Since my butterfly die arrived in August I have pulled it out to use several times.  Each time I run it through the Grand Caliber and prepare to place it and I change my mind, the color doesn't seem right, it won't work with the rest of the layout.....as excited as I am by the die, I just couldn't seem to find a way to get it to look or work the way I picture it in my mind.  Then along comes the challenge over at Our Daily Bread Designs to use metallic.....I knew I wanted to use my butterfly embossing folder and when I cut the butterfly die out in that wonderful shiny gold I knew I had exactly what I wanted.  Topped it off with a great scripture and now I have the card I was hoping for.  I am pretty low on my stash of this great paper and will need to find some more.
