Pink Butterflies

Today is my sister-in-law's birthday and I made this card for her. I hope she likes it as much as I do. This was one of those times when I got so wrapped up in making a card that I lost all sense of time. When I finished it, I realized I had worked on it for over two hours. Does that happen to anyone else, or am I the only one? It's crazy, but I was having so much fun.
I used the Basic Grey sultry paper pack as my inspiration. The paper is so pretty. I matted it on Bazzill cardstock and then onto Papertrey White. I cut the label with a Label One die (Spellbinders) from Bazzill cardstock and then used my Quickie Glue pen around the edges and added diamond dust glitter. I stamped the butterfly onto my label in Versamagic Pixie Dust then stamped it with Versamark onto vellum. I embossed it with Pink glitter embossing powder and then punched it out with the EK Success Whale of a Punch butterfly. The stamp was designed to fit this punch. Really convenient!
The ribbon is Papertrey Sweet Blush satin ribbon. I stamped my sentiment from Garden of Life with Palette Claret ink onto a ribbon slider I cut from a Cuttlebug die. I inked the edges and stamped the butterflies in Versamagic Pixie Dust. The corner is a Cuttlebug die and the rhinestones are from K & Company and Michaels Brides collection. The butterfly stamps are from Purple Daisy Designs.

Have a blessed weekend!
