Hello, I just have a quick post to share. I bought this lovely butterfly paper (Botanique- American Crafts) and it was just begging to be used. It has a gold glint to some of the wings. I cut it out, added some gold ink to the edges then I cut out a panel with my Fiscars oval punch and inked the edges with the gold as well. Sorry the pic doesn't show the shine. I then layered some gold and cranberry ribbon together and tied a bow with the latter. I used my glue gun to add a couple extra loops and the flowers that a wonderful friend gave me! Then I stamped the sentiment from Inkadinkado and added a few little EK Success butterflies whose wings I inked and added a mini pearl to. I then added a bit larger pearls to the four corners. It was wonderful to make this just because. I do use a lot of these cards, so it won't be long until it finds a home.
