April 29-- Retiform by Pat

Let's get started !!

Here's my card for 
Still using my butterflies to create my cards, perhaps my
last card will have a different bug...who knows? lol
Again, I went with a mainly white card. I used circle
die cuts, 2 different sizes, stamping the butterfly on
the smaller and embossing the larger. My butterflies
were stamped in different color Memento Inks. Before
I added the circle, I embossed the lower third of the
main cardfront. I added a black ribbon and a gingham
black and white bow. I raised the circles with the
butterflies using mounting tape. Simple card.

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

"Scenic Selections"
"Spring Sayings"

Here's the Design Team
