Set of 4 Butterfly Note Cards

The butterfly images on these cards came from a box of tissues. When I finished the box a few weeks ago I kept it, determined to do something with it. Well, the box had butterflies on, I couldn't just get rid of it LOL! So I cut up the box and cut out and embossed the circles using Nesties. As there were 4 images I decided to make 4 note cards that I intend to give a friend as part of a gift.

I took the colour scheme of pink, red and black from the tissue box images. The Pretty in Pink cards measure just a tad under 5". I've layered with Real Red and black CS. The 'A Note for You' sentiment is from the Waltzingmouse Stamps Say It with Style set - I LOVE the font of the sentiments in this set! It's not easy to see the sentiment from this photo but you can click on the photo to get a larger view. I used the SU! oval punches to layer the sentiment and I've popped it up. After adding the ribbon, to finish off the card, I added 3 small black punched flowers with pink crystal centres.
