Butterfly Breezes

I cased this card from our wonderful SU monthly card workshop demonstrator (go Diane!).  She comes up with the most beautiful cards each and every month! The flowers are Stippled Blossoms done in Baja Breeze on top of En Francais done in Crumb Cake on Whisper White cardstock.  Then more En Francais on the Baja Breeze cardstock and just a hint of black borders.  The sentiment was done in Stazon with clear embossing powder and the butterflies are Taylored Expressions dies done in Baja Breeze with vellum on top.  There is just a hint of glitter around the edges of the Baja Breeze butterflies (you have to click on the pic to see it). Oops!  I just noticed one of the pearls came off in the photo shoot! A quick fix, but I'm not doing the photo shoot again!  LOL!  Anyway, the glitter is Sparkle N Sprinkle's Waterfall - semi transparent and just the right touch! Now the bow was a bit of a problem since I didn't have any Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon (help! Diane!), so I took the Very Vanilla, spritzed it with rubbing alcohol and colored it with Copic E55, Light Caramel.  Close enough, don't you think? I did several cards, and on some I used a black bow, but I think I like the Caramel best. Thanks for looking!
