I'll tell ya, I love my Butterfly Kisses stamp set from Papertrey Inks, but I also have to admit that the set intimidates me a bit. When I look at all the wonderful images, I get a little overwhelmed about what to do with them. Oh sure, there are tons of samples out there, but I want so much to create something of "my own" if you know what I mean.
Well, this past weekend, I bit the bullet, so to speak, and made this card. A few images, a little patterned paper, clear button, ribbon and a tag using a sentiment from the Faux Ribbon set, also from Papertrey and it was done. I feel that the card turned out just "OK"...nothing to really wow me off my craft chair, but I don't hate it, so it was saved from the circular file. *grin*

I think it's very striking! You did a great job coordinating all the elements--Love the dp and the little charm (button) in the top right corner holding the tag. Hope you're over your intimidation, 'cause this proves you can do beautiful original cards with this set! YES!!
