Butterfly Blacks

This card was created exclusively for the Joan's  Touch  Challenge #14.  We are to use a die, embellishments and use black on the card.  For this card I used Spellbinders S4-409 Gold Majesty  Circle dies, the beautiful FRA9155 Monarch Butterfly by Frantic Stamper Dies, and a Graphic 45 stamp from the Sweet Sentiments (Spring) stampset.  "The gifts of  Spring cause much delight, warm sun shines over your pathway bright."
  The card front is also die cut from the  Gold Majesty set, and the black cut is slightly off-set to border the die with white. The inside of the card is faced with gray paper and the sentiment on the   Gold Majesty Circle is cut  with a Marvy Uchida tag punch accented with a square rhinestone.  Inside a border accent was added, a Martha Stewart Butterfly Border punch. The Dies, papers and Graphic 45 supplies are available at Joan's Gardens, and the beautiful butterfly die was my gift from  Terri at the Gardens for being the lucky winner of Challenge #8.  It is embellished, or burnished lightly with Gold Inka  Gold paint.  Thank you Joan and Terri for the fun, and for this black and die challenge this week.

This card is really white, black and gray, but the color didn't come out true on the butterfly which I reposted when I realized I hadn't put on the gold rhinestones!
