SFYTT Butterfly For You

Today's card is for this week's Sketch For You To Try on Jen's blog!
I started with a white card base, layered with Purely Pomegranate and Pretty in Pink. The larger panel is a piece of white, punched down the sides with the Lacy Days of Summer punch by Fiskars (I just LOVE this punch!!), and topped with some butterfly paper (Patchwork Quilt) from Basic Grey's Urban Prairie range. The horizontal panel uses some 'Petticoat' paper from the same range and has been matted with some light teal card. The next panel is made of some white that has been embossed with 'Stylized Flower' EF and matted on some Pretty in Pink. I've stamped the butterfly from SU's 'Touch of Nature' set in Rose Red (because I don't have Pomegranate), cut it out and popped it on some foam tape. The sentiment panel has been cut using the Ribbon Tag Trio die set, sponging the centre, adding ribbons on the sides and stamped the sentiment in black from SU's 'Occasional Greetings' (or All Holidays if you are in the US) and finished off by adding some silver brads to the corners.
That's all for now, thanks for visiting!!! :)
