Inspired Butterflies

Today's card is a SNEAK PEEK of a new clear stamp set, called Brick Wall, from Mark's Finest Papers that will be released early in November.
My inspiration for this card came from today's SCS Inspiration Challenge, which was to be inspired by the beautiful jewelry of Destiny's Creations. I was inspired by this pretty copper butterfly necklace.
It's a little difficult to tell in the photo, but there is a lovely vine image clear embossed on the copper panel and on the card base. I'm hoping that this close-up photo shows it a little better.
Other challenges incorporated into this card:
This card will go to another one of our nieces who celebrates her 18th birthday in a few weeks. I still have a few more November birthdays/anniversaries to get cards ready for!! Hopefully this week will be less hectic than last and I'll be able to cross some projects off my list.

Thanks for stopping by to share my little slice of bliss for today!!

You have such a knack for interpreting challenge photos. THis one is spot-on. It's such a neat layout, too. I am curious about this "Brick Wall" has some stamps I have found appealing, but I don't get the name!
