Perfectly Purple

Hello everyone,

This is the birthday card for one of my nieces.

The printed paper is DCWV Birthday layered on Stampin' Up Whisper White and more DCWV Birthday.  The butterfly is a Sizzix Beautiful Butterflies die cut from Stampin' Up Lovely Lilac that was glittered with Martha Stewart Charoite glitter.  The ribbon is Offray.  The sentiment is Stampendous Retro Happy Birthday stamped in Elegant Eggplant on Whisper White.  The embellishments are Stampin' Up Basic Jewel Rhinestones.

I've always loved this butterfly and when glittered, it's even more spectacular.  I've used more ribbon in my last few cards than I have in months and months.  I don't know why I don't use it more often because it really does add something wonderful to a card.  This particular ribbon glitters a lot more than the photo shows and works great with the butterfly.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.

  1. Isn't that funny how you don't use an embellishment for awhile and then when you do you wonder why you haven't used it? That ribbon caught my eye. I had a small stash of some very similar and enjoyed playing with it. I love how glittery your butterfly is!
