Just When.....................

I made this card for the Queen for the Day challenge #72 on Splitcoaststampers. The newly crowned queen is Emily aka stampingout and I cased this card of hers. I believe she used cardstock for her strips but I went with some ribbon I had been wanting to use. Punched out a few butterflies, added some pearls and that's about it. Easy peasy!


Recipe:
Stamps: Outlines (no name)
Paper: PTI white cardstock, black cardstock from Hobby Lobby
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Martha Stewart classic butterfly punch, pearls, Celebrate It! ribbon
