Butterflies, Buttons, Bows and Pearls


I realized recently that my stash of anniversary cards has just about been depleted, so I need to focus on making a few more. This one is done with some pale yellow textured, and white pearlized card stock. I embossed the bottom half with an Anna Griffin ef, then added a SNSS border die, woven with white satin ribbon. I colored a piece of Graphic Whiskers natural twine with a Copic and tied it into a little bow through 2 small holes in the border die. I punched some butterflies using 2 sizes of Punch-a-Bunch butterfly punches, and added pearls to the white ones and a tiny button to the yellow one.

I'm entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge which is "anything goes with pearls," as well as the Butterfly Challenge #2 which is "3 B's." Butterflies, buttons and bows.

Thanks for stopping by today and I wish you all a wonderful Friday!

Hmmmm, is that a new EF I see?
Please be sure that is riding in your bag for our next play date! LOL! This is so soft and beautiful, Carol! and I am drooling over the folder. Gorgeous work, as always.

The creamy yellow and the pearlised white work perfectly together. I like the pretty ef and such a good idea with the paper edging to thread through with the satin ribbon. Not come across those butterflies before so some more for my wish list methinks! Thank you for fluttering in again for #2. Hugs Mrs A. (butterfly challenge).

Very pretty Carol, I like the soft yellow color you used with that pretty embossing folder. I also know what you mean by keeping up with anniversary cards. Right now I need three Anniversary cards...and Not one in my stash!
