The Cuttlebug Spot Bad News, Good News

This is my second post for today, so if you're looking for the Top Tip Tuesday Challenge, please scroll down.

I have some bad news to share with you, The Cuttlebug Spot is unfortunately closing down, BUT a couple of the ladies from the DT are going to continue with Cuttlebug Challenges on a new blog, and I will continue on with them as part of the DT. As soon as I know the new information (blog name, etc.), I'll be passing it on to you!

This card that was to be for this weeks challenge of Butterflies, and add some sparkle to the butterfly.  There's no challenge for you to enter, but enjoy and be inspired by my card:)

Edited to add:
The Challenge is moving to Cuttlebug Mania, and you can enter any project with butterflies!!!

Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"
 I did alot on this card, lol.  I cut my card base with Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8.  I embossed the mat behind the butterfly, but inked my folder first for a faux letterpress look.  I then embossed the center area by sending it through again with the Swiss Dots embossing folder...this is called partial embossing (I used an oval shape instead of the B Plate to emboss just the oval area)

A detail shot.
