Embellish with butterflies and a little kissing:)

A couple of friends passed an important test to become registered technicians recently. I know they were both really nervous and I know what it's like to scroll through hundreds of numbers looking for yours and how nervewracking that is! Even though it's only the first step in a long process, I was still so proud of them, and they should be proud of themselves too! So, I made them both similar cards using the new Embellish challenge and the current clean and simple sketch. I loved the colour combo and who doesn't love to embellish with butterflies?! I didn't have kraft, but I think soft suede is pretty close so I used it instead:) I also tried the kissing technique with my butterfly. I gave my inked butterfly a peck with a polka-dot stamp. It's pretty subtle, but I still like it. Here's one of the cards that I made, I really like how it turned out. I think I might have to use this sketch again:)

-soft suede, very vanilla, old olive, and basic black cardstock
-pp from stock
-black brads
-basic black, old olive, whisper white ink
-Little Leaves Sizzlit die
-mellow moss gingham ribbon

thanks for stopping by!
