April 29-- Retiform by Pat

Let's get started !!

Here's my card for 
I used white as my main color. Just call me
Captain Obvious. lol  I took a narrow embossing
folder and embossed up about an 1" from the bottom.
I stamped my sentiment and added a matching
ribbon. I stamped, colored (using Copics) and cut
out the butterfly. I raised it using mounting tape.
And, as always, I have multiply layers and boom,
done! Thanks for popping in. Be sure to visit
all the other members of the design team for
more lovely cards!

Stamps can be found in MFP Stamp Shop.
I used:

"Hello Butterflies"
"Spring Sayings"
