MTMEPP04 Challenge

Hi folks!  It's time for another My Time Made Easy Pretty Pattern Sketch challenge.  For this week's challenge, I decided to combine a few sets with some dies to make my card.

I started out by printing out some wonderful digital paper called Plum Pretties and matched the colors to some Stampin Up! card stock I have on hand.  Once the bottom half of my card was stamped using the All A Flutter and So Fortunate sets, I got to work stamping the center divider with the smaller butterflies from the All A Flutter set and two larger butterflies (one for popping up later). 

Once that was done, I die cut the layered labels using some pale plum & lavender lace card stock.  Once my background for the first label was done, I stamped the sentiment from the All A Flutter Sentiments before sponging plum ink around the edges and popping up with dimensionals.

After adding my layered butterfly, I decided the card needed just a little something else, so I pulled out some white pearl stickers from Michael's and outlined the oval label, butterfly, and prima center.  A purple clip tied into some ribbon makes the perfect final touch.

Here's a close up of the details.  Don't you just love all of those pearls with the white baby brads?
