September PTI blog hop

The technique that I learned that I am using, is to use a strip of vellum across the front of the card.  It is such a 'light' material that doesn't take away from the other elements on the card (like the gorgeous impression plate), but also anchors the butterfly, and provides a good place for a sentiment. 


Supplies: stamps - Everyday Button Bits (PTI), paper - sweet blush, vellum (PTI), DSP (SU), ink - Tuxedo black stamped off once (Memento), other  - In Bloom impression plate (PTI), Beautiful Butterflies die (SU), 1/4'' silk ribbon (PTI).
