Oh! Butterflies

Don't you just love this wonderful paper and stamp sets perfectly coordinate to each other??? Seriously Nichole Heady is a design GODDESS. If I had paper that had a matching stamp set to stamp the paper, I would buy ALL of it!!

I started this card on the PTI Vintage Cream, which I have to say I have been neglecting. What can I say I Love the Stampers Select so much, Thanks Char for turning me on to it *wink*. I took out the Chocolate remix paper pack that is to DIE for and stamped the bigger butterflies with sweet blush and then with the smaller butterfly stamp I stamped spring moss into the centers of the big flowers. Once I was done that I added crystal effects over all the butterflies I had just stamped. Then I stamped the matching large butterfly from the set on sweet blush c/s and covered it with crystal effects as well as the 2 small chocolate butterflies.
After the crystal effects all dried, I added these cute little pearls from hero arts and then I layered the pp on sweet blush and wrapped chocolate satin ribbon around and tied it in a simple know after adding 2 strips of sweet blush satin as well.

Just a hint: I used glue tape the stick the oink strips together in the shape of an "X" and then put a bit of glue on the back so it would stay in place as I tied the chocolate ribbon. Worked like a charm. I did not have to fiddle around with the ribbons at all.

The sentiment is from mixed messages stamped in dark chocolate on vintage cream c/s and cut out with a SU oval punch and layered on another oval of sweet blush. The last little effect was adding the teeny tiny butterflies on either side and finished them off with crystal effects.
Thanks for stopping in See ya again soon!
