I stamped the image, then turned it upside down and stamped it again going in the other direction:
Here is a close-up of the butterfly- the pictures do not capture the parchment:
Here is a great visual tutorial by Stacey- owner at Sweet Stamps.
I decided the card needed one more thing.....so I added Candy Brads that were painted with Creative Inspirations Paint in Copper, then I added lines over that with a Sakura Gelli Roll pen.
I also stamped a butterfly in purple inside of the card and highlighted it with the Sakura pen.
I made an envelope for my card using some shimmery purple cardstock : )

Love the design, it's so elegant. Love how you embossed the Lace Border in gold and the wonderful parchment butterfly.
Oh my word, it is so elegant & preeeetty! Parchment vellum is the gold standard of vellum in my book *Ü*
Shelly, this stamp really packs a great punch! Love the embossing effect and the butterfly is stunning as well! Now I have an inkling why some of my vellum things have not worked as well as I wished!
Awesome creation .Must try that parchment vellum .
Stunning card! And your butterfly is just GORGEOUS! Wow!!!

HUGS from OHIO!
This is beautiful! I love the glimmer!
This is stunning with that glorious butterfly.
I think that the way you used that lace border is ingenious! The effect is amazing, and it is the perfect background for the butterfly - gorgeous effect, and I know this sort of project is exactly what that stamp was designed for! I love it.
This is gorgeous! I don;t often use parchment so that would be a challenge for me. Truly a work of art!
Saw this on MIM, Gorgeous card, wonderful
Very pretty indeed!! Love the Parchment work on the card!!
Beautiful job with the butterfly and the border image. Very pretty card, so delicate!
Gorgeous! Love the butterfly, the laceboder and the shimmer. Looks amazing!
I can sum this up in one word or three letters "WOW." Love that butterfly and the entire card is so delicate and elegant! Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
What a gorgeous card! Beautifully done. Thanks for entering it into the Eureka! Stamps Challenge this week!
Oh my Gosh Shelly that card is Stunning. it really looks like lace and love the butterfly. Well done!!!
Gorgeous card Shelly! I would not have guessed it was a border stamp - I though it was the patterned paper.
Lovely card, Shelly, so very pretty.
(We've e-mailed a few times, but I haven't been out on a good round of blog visiting since school started! I feel like a terrible bloggy friend!)
Gorgeous golds! Love the distressing in the background. Such an elegant butterfly. Lovely card.
