The Pink Elephant Challenge #4

This week's challenge at The Pink Elephant was to use ribbons and diecuts. I had fun with this card, I started out using some of my new patterned paper from the Colorbok Friendly Forest collection and pulled the colors from there. I used my Martha Stewart scallop dot border punch for the edges of the card base and can I just say I absolutely love border punches & I think I need to grow my collection hehe (I only have two), I used the swiss dots & stylized flowers Cuttlebug embossing folders to emboss the cardstock. I used my new Butterfly Reflections Spellbinders die for the butterly & added some dew drops to it. I tied a bow around the card then strung some buttons & flower onto a Chloe's Closet Making Memories pin & poked it through the ribbon.

Be sure to head on over the The Pink Elephant to see what the other design team members did & we'd also love for you to play along. Thanks for stopping by!

I love this card, Trudi! The colors are wonderful and the butterfly is great. I own that die set and I have yet to use it. Terrible isn't it? You have inspired me to pull it out and do something with it!
