Flown the Coup

I'm back. Four days in a row not bad!
This blogger software is great. It lets you look at stats for your blog, it even shows you where in the world your blog viewers are. I was surprised to see views from Germany and Canada! It doesn't take long for things to get around these days. I guess that's why they call it the World Wide Web!
Well as promised today's card does not contain any birdys! I have seen this paper lace look around blog land and decided to give it a ago. I am quite pleased with the result and hope the recipient is as well. I think this card really suits their style. As soon as I sat down to make this 'thank you' card I knew this was the time to try this technique.

I started by using a variety of border punches to create my lace, then layered them onto the card. I'm not sure how well it shows up in the picture, but about halfway down I punched both sides of the cardstock to make a double sided lace.
I then stamped two butterflies from the Bliss set, using the rock and roll technique. I hand cut them, mounted them onto dimensionals and added my favourite little touch of BLING.
I have used some Pretty in Pink satin ribbon to make a double bow and have fastened it using a Rhinestone Brad. The sentiment if from the hostess set Afterthoughts. I have only inked up the word thanks, using a Pretty in Pink marker and punched out the word using the Large Oval Punch. I then layered the sentiment onto a tag from the Lots of Tags Sizzlit Pack. Love that Big Shot!

I have decorated the inside also, using two more strips of my paper lace and a butterfly. The sentiment is from another hostess set, Occasional Quotes, which I have stamped in Pretty in Pink and have punched with the Curly Label Punch.
