Less is More - Metallic

Very quick card today for the Less is More challenge, which is to use something that has a metallic finish.
I have had this metallic paper for ages, think it came free with a magazine and have never known what to do with it. So put it through my cuttlebug with an embossing folder and cut a butterfly from it. Not very easy to photograph, hope you can see that it's purple :)

If you have never visited the Less is More blog you really are missing something special and there are already some fantastic cards on there for this challenge.

I'm glad we gave a purpose to your metallic card Suzilou,I agree that shiny things are very difficult to photograph!
This looks great!
Thanks so much

Fab embossed panel, I never know what to do with shiny card either, usually end up layering over it. May just try embossing for a change.
