vintage plus green

Another day, another card ... I really have to stop this! 
~ Ü ~

A simple card today, with just a few embellishments.

My latest bows are all made using the bow easy technique I saw on youtube. I layered a khaki grosgrain on sheer ribbon for this. Then finished it off with gold twine  and a button.

The butterfly was stickled, then coated with gloss gel. I like the dimension, and how it curls up when it dries. It is then layered onto a Tim Holtz mini butterfly, and topped with a gem.

supplies: image from The Graphics Fairy, papermania embossing folder, sizzix die, cheery lynn die, distress inks, stickles, Viva Decor paper pen, Viva Decor gloss gel; others from my stash.
