First Papertrey :-)
So, I only got one card done last night but that's one more than the night before :-) All I can say is that I absolutely love Butterfly Kisses from Papertrey. I don't know why on earth I waited to order it. I like the Faux Ribbon set as well, especially because of all the little sentiments but I can tell it's going to take me some time to get the ribbon images to work correctly for me.
The card base is Ruby Red and the patterned paper is from BasicGrey's Perhaps line. I used my Versamagic Dewdrop chalk inks for this card as well. I'm sure that I'll have all the colors before too long. The small strip in the middle is a few of the Faux Ribbon pieces stamped on Very Vanilla in Sahara Sand and Spanish Olive. The focal image is stamped in Pink Grapefruit and overstamped with Red Brick. The sentiment is also stamped with Spanish Olive. I added Candy Cane and Frosted Lace stickles on some of the spots as well as the little pierced trail. I rounded the corners of this piece, edged it in Red Brick ink, and matted it on a piece of True Thyme that also has it's corners rounded. Once I finished, I liked it but thought it was missing something so I added a few more of the small butterflies that were inked in Pink Grapefruit and Red Brick. Aha! That did it for me! My dd loves this card as well but she tends to like most things I make if I let her stamp, too.
Thanks for visiting!
