Fluttering by with Ribbon

Hi everyone, I'm fluttering by today with a CAS card made with snippets and bits and bobs from my stash. I used white linen card for the base and Marianne Creatables for the shapes die-cut from snippets of card. The silver die is actually a large snowflake but I think it looks much better creased up to add depth and used as a doiley. The butterfly matches the burgundy red ribbon perfectly and I finished off with couple of pearls and a magazine freebie sentiment.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Butterfly challenge 'butterfly + R is for ribbon'
Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets' (my 2nd entry)
Winter Wonderland challenge 'KISS keep it sweet and simple'
Simon Says Monday challenge 'red + pink'
Simon Says Wednesday challenge 'all creatures great and small'

Thanks for popping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of the week.

You have me speechless again with this CAS card. I love the silver effect on the butterfly and that silver snowflake such a perfect foil(no pun intended) for the butterfly. Wow, Wow and yet more Wow. Thankyou for being the first and fluttering by my 1yr anniversary Butterfly Challenge #24.
Hugs Mrs A.
