Stampin' Up! Beautiful Butterflies

Butterflies and flowers on a background of pink! Add some spritz, sparkle and ruffled ribbon and my heart is happy!

The middle portion with the torn edges was a happy accident.  The first card I made, my wheel was upside down, so I tore it out and added it to a new card.
I made a set of these for a friend, but embossed the floral image from the Elements of Style stamp set.
I used the same Very Vintage wheel stamp on the flap of the envelope for a complete coordinating look. So which do you like better?  The embossed version or the stamped on white version?  I think I prefer the embossed version, but the stamped version would be easy to reproduce for a class or card party.
If you click on the photo you can see a larger image and get a good look at the ruffled ribbon.  The new stitched 1/4" grosgrain ribbon has that sweet little white thread that is easy to pull, so you can easily gather your ribbon any time you need a little more dimension or character.
To get that ruffled edge of the paper to stand up, after tearing, run your bone folder perpendicularly to the torn edge until you get the look you like.  Gently press the bone into the edge as you run it along to further distress and create curl.
Finally,  a little spritzing with Rich Razzleberry marker in the Color Spritzer tool and some Shimmer Paint (just a drop or two) mixed with rubbing alcohol ink in our new spritzer bottles add the perfect finishing touch to this feminine vintage card.
This card was really easy to put together, but has really nice texture and dimension.  I hope you've enjoyed it and feel inspired to do some stamping today!
May God bless you abundantly,
