This is for two challenges. It's for the CAS Challenge to use Little Bits of Ribbon and also a personal challenge to make a dimensional card that my mom, who lost her eyesight this past month, can enjoy.
The background was dry embossed using a Cuttlebug Leafy Branch folder. I then sponged some blue dye ink on the background. The leaves were colored with markers to add shadow and a white pen for the highlights. The flowers are punched from designer paper scraps. The butterfly is punched and glittered. The sentiment, created with JustRite Stamps, is heat embossed in gold onto a Spellbinders' Double-ended tag. The ribbon bits are left over from my Easter cards but the ribbons bits were so small I couldn't tie them so I used another scrap of the same ribbon (a little larger) and cut two 1/16 inch strips and tied the ends and taped them in back. The sentiment tag was popped up on 3M foam tape. I think I met both challenges :)
Thanks for looking!
