Last Joy Fold

It is the last week to make cards for the current Butterfly Challenge.

Here is my inspiration for you today which uses ribbon as a closure on the card.
Elements taken from the wheel are Joy Fold/Jasmine/ Juicy Orange/ Jewels/butterfly.
The design paper is by Raspberry road and came as a freebie in a magazine. By careful cutting and placement of the paper I have managed to retain most of the pretty floral design which was only down the outside edges. The butterfly is a freebie stamp from Paper crafter Magazine which I stamped onto the design paper.
 Here you can see the partially opened card showing the floral  paper.
 The sentiment is by Kaisercraft  from their Birthday Wishes stamp set CS362.
Th ribbon for the closure and the jewels were from my stash. The cream textured card was an old cut up photo folder which had been in my stash for such a long time that is was yellow from age. around the edges.  You still have one week left to play so hope to see you.
