A circle was die cut from white card using a Nesties die and the butterfly image from the Penny Black Enjoy Life stamp set was stamped using Versacolor Black pigment ink and heat embossed with PSX silver embossing powder. The image was then coloured using Copic sketch markers and highlighted with Glitz It Lilac glitter glue.
The edge of the circle was then lightly coloured with Tim Holtz Dusty Concord distress ink and silver embossed.
The Fleur de Lys circle frame stamp, from the Papermania Hampstead Icons and Sentiments stamp set, was stamped and silver heat embossed onto pink card and die cut using a circle Nesties die. This was matted onto a die cut mauve circle and a Big Scalloped circle die cut from silver mirror card and embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder.
A panel of the mauve patterned paper, from a pad of Kate Knight designed papers I got free with a magazine, was distressed around the edges with the Dusty Concord and Black Soot Tim Holtz distress inks.
A strip of the silver mirror card was punched with the XCut Scallop border punch and embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. A strip of the pink card was matted on top and a length of white and silver organza ribbon was tied around it.
The strip was added across the patterned paper panel and this in turn was matted onto panels of the pink and silver mirror card.
Clear 'Patti's Pretties' dewdrops were then added in each of the corners of the patterned paper.
