Greetings, and I trust you feel welcome here - I am so pleased to see you visiting.
I was asked to make a card for an older woman recently. I started with the Card Patterns Sketch #170, but I digressed as I went.
My starting point was the paper and scalloped cutout from a paper pad. I had no blue ribbon to match, so cut and folded a piece of organza fabric I had on hand, covering the edges with the cutout. As I had chosen to use a blue card base, I wanted to bring out the pink of the roses with the sentiment and butterfly.
The sentiment was silver embossed on pink vellum, which was then mounted on white card with the edges sponged with distress ink, and all corners punched to round them.
I used the same layers for the butterfly after (dry) embossing.
The final details were the pearls - pink on pink, and champagne on the cut out and corners.
The butterfly was mounted on a die cut circle of blue card stock using foam tape to give some dimension.
