It's spring...time for Butterflies!

I used the same lovely butterfly from Impression Obsession again on this week's card. 

I am loving working with that die.  It cuts beautifully, the two layers line up perfectly (well, as good as my old eyes work anyway!).    The circle is cut with a Spellbinders circle...use your choice of size.

White and black cardstock
The golden brown is the reverse side of the Glitz designer paper I've been using for the last couple of cards, the Chevron is Hippity Hoppity paper from Echo Park...and is mounted directly to the card front.
The bow is tied around the top cardstock layer only...from the circle to the edge.  It is crinkly paper ribbon from May Arts that looks like rope until you fan it out...CAREFULLY!  Ask me how I know!
Pearls are Zva Creative

Here's that Glitz paper again...

So, I said that I would show you the "front" of that lovely Glitz patterned paper that I used to make the flourish on the butterfly last week.  This card uses it. 

The color is actually in a gradient from light to dark on the paper...just gorgeous!
The die is a Die-Namics die from My Favorite Things, called Fancy flourish.  The tips of the swirls are accented with pearls from Zva.  And the ribbon is a luscious wide silk-look ribbon from May Arts.  All supplies are from A Stamp N Place in Loveland, CO.
Hope you enjoy this simple, but elegant card.  Have a great week and I'll have more for you next Friday.
