Vintage Butterfly

Hey there! I've actually got a card for you today! But first, I wanted to let you know that the Sneak Peaks for Verve Visual's October 10 release are happening over at the Verve blog. In fact, it started a couple of days ago. And you do not want to miss a single one of the amazing cards my fellow designers have cooked up! In fact, I'll have something to share on Monday. So be sure to stop back.
Now, for today's card. I was in the mood for purple, so I pulled out some of my leftover Vintage Violet card stock and ribbon, and paired it up with Papertrey's Butterfly Kisses. The butterfly is celery and violet stamped on whisper white with some wire antennae. I layered that on Kraft with the dotted trail from Little Lady and a hand drawn border (Elegant Eggplant marker). The striped paper is Basic Grey and the dotted paper I stamped with a few of the MANY bits and pieces in the Butterfly Kisses set. I used Vintage Violet, Certainly Celery and Tempting Turquoise, then sponged the edges. I attached a few strips of ribbon with brads to go with the sketch I was using, CPS #2. I finished with some piercing and the sentiment on bottom (in black Versafine).

What's In It:
Stamps: Butterfly Kisses and Little Lady (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: Vintage Violet, Confetti White, Whisper White, Kraft (Stampin' Up!), Skate Shoppe (Basic Grey)
Ink: Vintage Violet, Elegant Eggplant, Tempting Turquoise, Certainly Celery (Stampin' Up!), black (Versafine)
Other: silver wire (Darice), ribbon, brads, paper piercer (Stampin' Up!), dimensionals, sponge
