Just Because Butterfly Moments

The butterfly image is from FLOURISHES set, Butterfly Moments. Copic markers are used to color image and the sparkle edges are achieved with a clear stardust gelly roll pen. Martha Stewart border punch and ticket corner punches used, along with some adhesive rhinestones. The sentiment is a SU rub on. The ribbon is from a package I received many moons ago! I love this ribbon, but the width lends itself to be cumbersome to attach and tie. This may not be new information to anyone, but I had one of those aha moments! I used my word window punch to create an opening to thread ribbon. No more ripping the card stock, when the hole is not large enough, no uneven cut line! It worked perfectly! Have a wonderful weekend! Don't forget FLOURISHES new releases next week! Take good care and thanks so much for stopping by!

OK, I love the HUGE bow. I love the card! I've not been posting as much, but I think about you and glance in from time to time.
Hugs & Blessings.

Beautiful card, Barb! Great idea with the word window punch. I use my slot punch all the time for ribbon--just never thought to use the bigger punch for the bigger ribbon. Duh!!
