Butterflies and ribbon

I used:

- 7" x 5" white card blank

- a white layer of card stock, embossed using the Couture Creations 'Tied Together' embossing folder

- wrapped a piece of lilac ribbon round the embossed layer before adhering it to the card blank and tied a single little knot of ribbon

- the image is a Penny Black pre-coloured Stickeroo sticker from the 'Language of Flowers' sheet, popped onto a snippet of SU's 'Perfect Plum' card stock. Can I add the little tip (once again) that these stickers really are impossible to shift once they're in contact with card so it's always best to put the sticker onto a slightly larger piece of card and then just trim it down after the Stickeroo is in place

- the sentiment is from the Personal Impressions 'Everyday Words Happy Birthday' set, stamped onto a snippet of white card using SU's 'Perfect Plum' ink pad

- used SU's 'Word Window' to punch out the sentiment and then layered it onto a snippet of SU's 'Perfect Plum', punched using SU's 'Modern Label' punch

- the image and sentiments were adhered to the embossed layer using thin sticky pads

  9. Your not late at all Di. I love that embossing folder and of course I do believe I also have that Stickeroos too. Looks fab here. Must get them out and actually use them instead of just admiring and putting back in folder. Thankyou for fluttering by and supporting my 1st anniversary butterfly challenge. Hugs Mrs A.

  15. This is so delicate and pretty Di, and I love that gorgeous ribbon and the Tied Together EF which I did buy quite a while ago but when I got it home it was a bit damaged so had to take it back and after that I have not seen it available anywhere so it is obviously one which I am not meant to have. x

  16. This is so soft and beautiful - WOW! I love that lavender ribbon with the embossed background, and the collage of butterflies is just dreamy!

  17. Ohhhh this is so pretty Di! I love the softness of the images and the beautiful butterfly. That embossing looks great too! Hugs, Brenda
