Embellish Magazine Color Challenge with Butterflies

Here's another card that I made today. This one is for the new Embellish Magazine Challenge:

Here are the DEEtails:

1. I took another piece of Kraft card stock and stamped the sentiment from my Trendy Trees set at the bottom in Basic Black ink.

2. I took a piece of Old Olive card stock and ran it through my Cuttlebug with my Swiss Dots embossing plate. I adhered my Kraft mat onto my Old Olive mat.

3. I love SU!'s Striped Grosgrain ribbon. I used the Basic Black striped ribbon and added a sew-free scrunched ribbon with some Sticky Strip. This is such a fun look!

4. I love the way colors look on Kraft card stock, so I stamped my butterflies from my Great Friend set directly onto Kraft with ColorBox Moss Green Ink. I embossed them and cut them out. Then I adhered them to my card with Stampin' Dimensionals. Because my ribbon is so puffy, I doubled my dimensionals.

5. I adhered everything to a Basic Black mat. I love how the black makes such a bold statement. Then I adhered it all to a Kraft card. I love a Kraft card, don't you?
