Inspiration time again
for my Butterfly challenge.
The current theme is
You can use either wet or dry embossing.
Pop on over and play along.
I have chosen to use embossing folders on this card.
I had such fun making the scarecrow card that I have made
another Gatefold card.

Apart from the ribbon detailed below
 everything else was  from my stash.

I used two different embossing folders.
Sizzix  656982 Butterfly thinking of you set
and a freebie embossing folder
that came with Paper Craft Essentials magazine some time ago. 
Pink and lavender card stock for the bases
layered up using white card stock.
The pink ribbon was on my desk from where I had cut it
off the neck of a jumper.
(The bits they sew in to attach to the hanger)
Pink butterflies were cut from the left over  card
using a Tonic Die  'Butterfly Blooms' 293720 set
I ran through the embossing folder after die cutting
and attached using PVA adhesive.
I have a huge 1tr bottle of it sat on my desk
to use up!
