I can tell you, in person, this is very metallic and shiny. I took the picture at an angle so it wouldn't blind you. For some reason, I've been doing quite a bit of embossing lately.I had the gold and silver embossing powder out and I couldn't get the idea of a gold and silver striped background and a layered gold/silver spiro oval out of my head. So here's my Gold & Silver all embossed card.

To start, I inked the stripe with the gold and silver inks, stamped it onto white card stock and carefully sprinkled the silver powder, then the gold and heat embossed. Just ink and repeat for the rest of the background.

On the spiro oval, I stamped/embossed one in silver and one in gold then used two different sizes of oval dies to cut them out. I used a smaller oval die for the sentiment then stacked them all together. I punched the three butterflies, inked them and gold or silver embossed them.
