Time to be Happy

When my sister-in-law called two weeks ago with good news I of course had to send a card. I found Garden Whimsy to have an appropriate saying so that's what I chose. I stamped the butterfly in So Saffron on a piece of Whisper White and the sentiment in Taken with Teal. I then pierced a hole in one of the "dots" on the butterfly and put a silver brad through it. I then layered it on a piece of So Saffron that I had punched with my Slot punch. I had to use my piercing tool to make a hole to thread my ribbon through since I forgot to bring my Crop-a-dile with me (makes it hard to set those Jumbo Eyelets I brought). I threaded a piece of Certainly Celery 1/4" grosgrain ribbon through and tied it in a knot. I then took a piece of Certainly Celery and cut it with my cutter in the Cutter Kit and layered it on my Taken with Teal card and added my butterfly layer over top.
