Butterfly Kisses

Here is the second card I've made today. Thank goodness for the clean and simple genres.

It uses the sketch from Clean and Simple challenge #FTL158.

I started with a white card from my stash and rounded the corners. I then ruched a lilac ribbon across the front and added a pink ribbon bow. Some lilac card was then cut into a label nestabilities and put through the BS in a Butterfly Kisses embossing folder ( this was in the candy I won at Make my Monday challenge last week), before being stuck with 3D pads on the left hand side. A smaller label was cut in pink card and the flowers stamped on it in darker pink, and the sentiment added in the same colour. A lilac butterfly was cut from the remnants of the large label and added to the small label.

This is the end result, what do you think?

You cant see the embossed butterflies very well, even with the close up, but they are there I can assure you. The butterfly on the small label is one of the large ones from the embossing folder, and it's stuck down along its body so the wings are free and can add some dimension.

Recipe : Card = SU Orchid Opulence, Lilac and White from my stash.
Ink : Rich Razzelberry
Stamps : Just Believe and Verve
Tools : Big Shot and SB nestabilities labels
Extras : Lilac and pink ribbon from my stash

I will also be adding this to the Less is More challenge so they can meet 1000 entries for their challenge this week.
