Heat embossed butterfly

I seldom use my collection of embossing powders, so appreciate a challenge to get me going!  I used silver embossing powder to give the butterfly a more elegant look.  In addition, I used a technique rare for me- fussy cutting.
Supplies:  Paper Studio dp, Costco black handmade paper; Cuttlebug birthday folder, also seldom used scalloped rectangle dies; MFP butterfly stamp.
Black and white, with die cuts:
Heat embossing:
Favorite embellishment (hard to say, but I really like ribbon):
