Flight of the Butterfly

Third post today! Wow! (Just catching up on projects I had uploaded but haven't shared....)

Its a trend, I tell ya! Butterflies everywhere!!!

I just LOVE how this card turned out. I had a request to create a birthday card for a girl and this is the result of procrastinating to the night before they needed the card to create it. Turned out beautifully, didnt it? I just love looking at this card over and over and over and over.....

Of course, I still didn't have my butterfly punch to punch out this butterfly so I had to cut it by hand. It turned out well because I was able to give the little creature antennae :) hehe.

To create the ruffled ribbon, I used a technique I learned from Allison's blog. Coincidentally, she also used the same stamp set on her card for this particular post! Haha. I preferred this technique much better than just trying to fold the ribbon to create pleats for this project. It gave the card a little more of a 'dainty' and delicate feel to it.

Thanks for 'fluttering' by! :)
