365 Cards - #186 - Ad Inspired

Today's challenge over at 365 Cards is ad inspired and Kristie has chosen the pic below to inspire us today. I am not quite sure if it is silver on the shoes because I cannot get a close enough look but I went with the silver, white, black and red and used the colours to inspire me.

This is my take on the challenge today using my brand new stamp set from SU that my bestie Sonya bought for me lol thanks so much Sonya I very much appreciate it and could not wait to ink it up.
I used silver pigment ink with my random butterfly stamp by PSX on the black base card and then I used the SU Weathered background stamp on my black background for the main butterfly. I know it looks busy but I really like the way it has turned out. Tell me what you think please?
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

Oh La La - Fantastic card Michelle, love your papers and butterfly stamp.
I will send you an email later, I have missed not being able to do any challenges and I have not posted anything on my blog since early August, that is so bad.
