Butterfly... Just Because

I was inspired by the weaving challenge at MFP Speedy Fox and Friends in making this card.  This is my first attempt at weaving, and I used ribbon to make a little panel. I think it turned out okay. For the card, I stamped two circles randomly on green cardstock with brown and white ink, stamped the sentiment in brown ink, and layered the cardstock to a white card base.  Next I added a brown zig-zag strip of DP that was a scrap from a previous project.  Then I affixed the woven panel with foam tape, added a die-cut butterfly, and embellished with brown gems.  Here are the supplies I used:
  • Stamps:  Simply Circles (Stampin' Up!), sentiment (Hampton Art for Studio G)
  • Ink:  Ancient Page - Chocolate (Clearsnap), Brilliance Moonlight White (Tsukineko)
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • DP:  Carson Dellosa
  • Ribbon:  Michaels
  • Dies:  Spellbinders - Classic Edges One and Fanciful Flight
  • Gems:  Dollarama
