A card for my sister.

Hi all,

I have been totally inspired by the lovely Dawn & her two cards here & here to make this card for my sister. I decided to use up more of my scraps from my last card. I've had this butterfly set from for at least a year now but very rarely get it out & play with it. Although of late I have been geting better at spreading the love amongst my stamps.

This is such a simple card to make. All I did was heat emboss the flourish in white on the black c/s down the open edge. Then I layered the pink rectangle on the non embossed side, then I stamped the butterflies & message directly onto the pink dot c/s. The ribbon is placed on the pink edge & folded over to the back. Where I covered it up by placing another piec of pink c/s that I had scalloped with my threading water punch. I also stamped the butterfly image onto white c/s & then cut out the largest butterfly & glued the body down & curled up the wings. I placed some kasiercraft black bling down as well. On the inside I stamped the butterfly image in Memories white onto black c/s after layering it onto white c/s. I inked the edges of the white c/s in Tim Holtz Distress ink Worn Lipstick.

oh wow♥WOW♥wow!!!
paula, this is MAGNIFICENT!!!
note to self: white embossing on black is easily 10 times more dramatic than the reverse...butterfly flourishes *ROCK*...using the scalloppy edge punch right on the edge is brilliant!!! :)
