I went in sort of a clean and simple direction with this card. I stamped this butterfly from the set with Encore Silver pigment ink on vellum, head embossed with silver detail embossing powder, then cut it out. I dry embossed part of the top white layer with a leafy design and then arranged some swirly bling over that for butterfly trails.


Then I tied black ribbon around, stamped the sentiment from the set and added some silver cord. Very simple design, but that butterfly provides a very dramatic effect, I think. There are more butterflies and more sentiments in this set--a real classic that I know I'll be going to over and over.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Tomorrow I'll have the last teaser for February's release and the release party and Hop and Shop is tomorrow night! Can't wait!
