Orange and Black

                Dream.....
Here's today's card.....
Update....Top Pick at Make My Monday Challenge
and
Winner at The Mixed Media Card Challenge
Thank you so much, thrilled and delighted x
The orange card has been sprayed with a couple of Lindy's stamp sprays.
The stamps at the bottom are from Stamplorations, which have been
black embossed and the Dream stamp embossed in gold.

The white linen card layer has been edged with 
aged black embossing powder from Stampendous/Frantage. 
I found it better to heat from below as the powder does fly 
everywhere otherwise, as the pieces are quite large.
The effect is like molten and gives a gorgeous super shine, 
with extra bits/mica in it.
The black die leaves are 'Marianna Vine Background Large' 
and the Orange leaf die 'Massa Leaf Outline' 
both from Poppystamps
The black one has been embossed several times to give the shine.

The butterflies have been die cut from sprayed orange card,
stamped with black text and sponged black ink around the edges.

The orange card has been raised onto foam and edged with gold EP.
The card has quite a bit of texture to it and movement which I liked.
I was inspired by the following challenges
I've used the theme and my favourite colour combination...at the moment!
The stamps used on the card are Stamplorations
I've used Halloween Colours and not the theme of Halloween
A bit Tricky!

I find your card quite dreamy. So many elements and so much for the eye to take in, yet still a lot of nice white space. And you can't ignore the gloss on those black leaves. Very cool. Thanks for joining us at the MMCC this month.
