 Whilst creating with Rococo Rose for this week's Colour Creations Showcase, I decided to make a card with the gorgeous Hydrangea Hill Mercury Glass Acetate.  Rather than re-inventing the wheel, I have used another of my cards as inspiration.

I started off adhering three horizontal strips of Silver Foil to a Thick Basic White card base.  I overlaid a panel of the Rococo Rose Mercury Glass Acetate.  My hope was that the contrast between the silver and the white backgrounds would be a little more dramatic!  After cutting two layers of the large Butterfly Beauty dies, from Rococo Rose card and Silver Foil, I snipped out the largest silver butterfly and laid it over the top of the largest Rococo Rose butterfly.  I then adhered the die-cut piece to the acetate, and addded Woven Threads sequins to the butterflies.  Both the Butterfly Beauty Dies, and Woven Threads Sequins, will be retiring in early May.

The sentiment, stamped in Rococo Rose ink, was created with the Art Gallery bundle.

I found this super-shiny metallic card very hard to photograph, but hopefully you get the overall look of it.  The acetate has thrown quite a purple shade in my photos, but to the eye it is a lovely dusky rose pink.

The acetate is actually quite close to the cardstock colour, of the die-cut butterflies, in real life.  Apologies for the almost headache-inducing reflection!

 After playing around with photographing this card in different lighting, and in different spots, I managed to get this photo on my kitchen bench!  It's not great, but reduces all the glare:
