I have a quite few sets I am very fond of but I decided to ink this beautiful set, Butterflies & Blossoms. It is my favorite one to color and they have flowers, butterflies & wonderful sentiments…it doesn’t get better than that, does it? :) The card was crated mostly using 123 Create Kit Bonjour and colored cardstock. The images were stamped on Classic Ivory cardstock using Memento tuxedo black and colored with Copic markers. The panel was sponged with Distress Ink spun sugar using Ink Blending Tool and Foam.  The butterflies were adhered just their body with glue dots. The sentiment was stamped on the mat of SB label 18 Nestabilities and it was sponged with Distress Ink shabby shatters using the same blending tool. I used the Satin Finish Cotton ribbon and embellished with vintage brad (included in the kit). To finish off, the pearls (included in the kit) were embellished on the butterflies.
