Butterfly Wishes

Color Throwdown #115 had this awesome color combination and I knew I wanted to create a card with it. Also Smita had challenged us to make a card using ribbons and no stamps!! She is the guest blogger on Yvonne's blog this wee - This was indeed a big challenge for me as I was not sure what to without stamping and it was kind of fun to think outside the box.

I used the new Tim Holtz Texture Fades Embossing folder for the Plum Pudding CS. I cut out the Butterfly from PTI Butterfly die set using the PTI Bitty Dot Basics Patterned paper.

I have always wanted to try the Layered and Looped ribbon technique that Nichole Heady (from PTI) does and never did. So Smita's challenge was perfect for this card. Here is a Video from Nichole Heady showing this Technique.

I am entering this card for,
1) Color Throwdown #115
