This rather blaah card is my attempt at today's TLC.
I think I should have used my better kitchen towel - but it's so strong it's hard to tear. This one was a bit flimsy. I spritzed it with Fired Brick re-inker in a mini-mister, and tore out 5 concentric circles, layering them with glue dots. In the centre I added some Liquid Pearls and glitter.
The base fits a business envelope. I stamped the stems from Flourishes for positioning, and then embossed the remaining blank part of the card. Scored a border around the un-embossed bit. Added Stickles all around the edge, and Glossy Accents Dew Drops on the rose. Stamped the stems again and popped up the leaves. The sentiment is MME paper and Nestabilities. The butterfly is MME paper and a Penny Black stamp.
It's kind of an entry for the Flourishes My Favourite Things challenge, but I think I should come up with something better.

Sabrina, this is so pretty. I love the sparkle around the edges of the card, the butterfly, the embossing to the left, that gorgeous ribbon, but most of all the dew drops on your rose. If you didn't tell them that it was a paper towel, they would never be able to guess. It looks like handmade paper to me.
