Here is a card I made a couple of months ago and forgot to share with you. I stamped the label from Everything Eleanor in Crumb Cake onto the Whisper White card stock and then embossed it with the Polka Dot embossing folder. The leaves are cut using the leaves sizzlet. I used some small pearls for the center of the flowers and colored them with a Sharpie marker. The little blue flowers are punched with the Itty Bitty Punches and the butterfly is punched with the Butterfly Punch and some retired DSP. I just love the way the Seam Binding ribbon ties into a bow!
