Thanks for the Little Things - PDCC141

Hey friends!!  Today I have a pretty little card I was inspired to create with the current Play Date Cafe challenge 141.  I really love the color combo in this challenge......although I don't have much mint in my collection, I had previously dyed some seam binding with glimmer mist to create this lovely crinkle ribbon that worked perfectly for my card.........
The flowers and label are cut on my Cricut with both of the Close to My Heart cartridges (label from Art Philosophy, roses from Artiste).  I sprayed the flowers with a little bit of yellow glimmer mist to add a little bit of sparkle to them, although it is a little hard to see in the pictures.  The only thing is that it did change the colors of the flowers from a soft yellow to a brighter one, but I still love the look.
The butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch, the sentiment is from an older Stampin' Up set and the patterned paper is unknown from my scrap pile.  I added a little stitching from my sewing machine and a pen to finish the card off.  Thanks for stopping by!!


Hugs,
Amy
