I selected a piece from the same little pad that was a deeper golden color. The sheet had subtle brown wording on it, but I thought that added to the interest of the butterfly shape and gave it more dimension. Again, I cut two butterflies, layering them on top of each other and gluing the bodies together.
Lastly, I added ribbon, two amber colored gems and the sentiment. I think the overall look is quite nice and achieves the masculine look that I was after. I think you can see from my two samples that despite the delecate cuts and embossed details of this Marianne die, it is quite a versatile shape. I'm thrilled to have it in my collection.
