Two Gifts + Stash = One Card

Welcome

I have (thankfully) been told that my new follower, Anne's, blog is here, and called Cotnob Crafter
Do pop over and have a look - Anne does some beautiful work.


This card was inspired by some of the goodies that came with a Verve Stamps order I had recently bought.  The design paper and the ribbon came in that package.


The die cut doily (cut with the Marianne Die, French Pastry) was cut from translucent paper that I use like vellum - I love the soft look of this and it does not hide the paper the same as a plain paper doily would.


The ribbon is a such a pretty colour of seam binding, and I was so happy to get a really lovely bow from it.


The butterfly was part of a RAK sent to me from MariLynn of Missippi Mc Gyver blog


The sentiment was silver embossed on the paper, and the card finished with some flat back blue pearls.


The inside was finished with the sliver of patterned paper that was over.
