Creative Elements embossed

I've been anxious to use this beautiful flourish for several days.  I finally decided it was so elegant it should be embossed.  I used VersaMark ink and gold detail embossing powder on So Saffron card stock.  It proved to be as beautiful as I expected.  The butterfly was stamped and embossed on the card,  then stamped, embossed again, and cut out to layer over the first one. 
I used the Adorning Accents Edgelit to sculpt the edge of the card.  A touch of a Crumb Cake marker along the curved edge gave it just enough detail to make it pop from the card.  (This is probably  not visible from the photo.)  This card layer was attached with Stampin' Up  Dimensionals.
Inside, a verse from the Trust God stamp set was inked in Basic Gray Ink.  The flourish image was stamped again in VersaMark and embossed with gold EP.  I will be using this as a sympathy card. 

Thanks for looking,

This is gorgeous! I bet it looks amazing in real life with the gold embossing.
