Reach for the Moon

Good evening, my card today has used a stamp I have had for a while and struggled for inspiration with. I found the backing papers in a local craft shop and knew if I had them then the stamps would get a lease of life!
First I cut a Cheery Lynn Die - Exotic Butterfly - small#2 on my cuttlebug. Next I embossed it using a black embossing powder.
Using a paper from Katysuedesigns - Lunar Landscapes, I stamped my silhouette using using versamark and again embossed it with a black embossing powder. I then triple mounted the image with silver paper and then a black textured card which I cut using a deckle edge blade.
I made a card blank using a deep purple A4 piece of card and attached the mounted image. Down each side I added a strip of silver accent beads. I added my butterfly and a flower to contrast attached with a silver and purple pearl brad. I embossed the sentiment "Reach for the Moon" and curled and raised it using pinflair glue. To finish off I added some purple/black hot rhinestone gems to the butterfly body and the swirls of the backing paper.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges -
craftascene - silhouettes-challenge-week-3
paper-pretties-monday-challenge - dry or wet embossing
