PDCC42

Monday, August 16, 2010

I've got The Play Date Cafe's Challenge #42, for you all, today.
Here's what I came up with.
I started this card by adhering the cardstock, butterfly die-cut, just at its center, to a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and machine stitching brown-threaded, straight stitches around the butterfly's body and above its head for the antenna.
I, then, embossed a frame around the Crumb Cake cardstock's edges and adhered it to the Chocolate Chip, cardstock, card face, before stamping the "THANK you" sentiment, in Chocolate Chip ink, in its bottom center.  Finally, I wrapped an ivory, satin-trimmed ribbon, between the butterfly and the sentiment, around the card face; tied it in a bow, just left of center; and embellished it with a green button, laced with hemp twine.
Thanks for dropping in, and have a fantastic week!
