A very simple card today, sometimes it's best to keep it simple to show off a paper, die cut or both!  This card is made simply with a First Edition paper from the bird song pack as the backing paper mounted on white glitter paper.  The same paper was used to double cut a heartfelt creations die (borrowed from Wendy next door)

The sentiment is cut from Spellbinders labels four, the outer ring with dies 1 and 2, the background with just size 2 which creates a frame.  This is mounted with foam Tape over the stamped sentiment.  Finally I fussy cut 2 butterflies from a piece of cream card embossed with a DoCrafts embossing folder.  These were inked and gold wire as the stamens (don't think this is the right word but stuck)

Close up of the sentiment.

A simple card that to me looks very intricate, Enjoy...
