I really love this combination of colors. When I saw them, I immediately thought of these gorgeous new of papers I just bought from Sharon Johnson's Ribbon Store - Webster's Pages Seaside Retreat, Garden Gala & Nature’s Storybook Triple Pack DP. They are just beautiful and can be used with little embellishment. I used River Rock as my card base and added a layer of Riding Hood Red. The next layer is Garden Gala DP. I used Certainly Celery 5/8" grosgrain ribbon topped with Riding Hook Red 3/8" taffeta ribbon on the right side of the card for embellishment. I stamped 3 different butterflies from Papertrey Ink's Butterfly Dreams in Certainly Celery, Riding Hood Red and Soft Suede ink, then cut them out with Papertrey Ink's butterfly die. I adhered them to the ribbon with Dimensionals and bent them up a little on each side. I added another strip of the DP to the right of the ribbons that I had cut when I was sizing the main panel. I added tiny 4 tiny half-pearls to the center of the butterflies and 2 larger half-pearls to the top and bottom of the DP strip. I stamped the "Thank You" sentiment from Butterfly Dreams on the center butterfly using VersaFine Vintage Sepia ink. Thanks for stopping by today!
