I was determined to make a card with one of my many embossing folders for this weeks LIM challenge. By last night I had a box of white embossed bits and still no card so decided to give up. Postie arrived this morning with a parcel from Bunny Zoes - goods bought with a prize gift voucher - and I just got around to opening it!! Forgotten I'd ordered this Marianne Design folder so got straight to making this card:
After finding a shim that worked in the GC white pearlised card was embossed, white pearls added to the flowers, a ribbon tied. I found the butterfly sentiment when I went looking for a "thank you" and thought it more suitable so added a few pearls and used it. Looking at the photo now I'm not sure it needs a ribbon so this is it without:

and with ribbon, without butterfly as Debgem suggests:

I'll let the experts decide, this so isn't my thing so I'm off to play with some colour!
Other challenges entered:
Bling it on - pink, lemon, white colours or flowers (lots of white and flowers)
Cutie Sunday - butterflies

  1. I really like both these cards. I actually prefer it with the ribbon. Love the pearls in the flower centres. At the risk of being picky - I think I'd like without the butterfly :)

  2. Hello
    Gorgeous card ...i like the ribbon ....Fab...

  3. I would have to see them 'in the flesh' to make a decision. On screen they all look lovely. I think I'm slightly swayed towards the one with the butterfly and no ribbon. Hazel x

  4. Great card Carol, very pretty and eye-catching! Valerie

  5. Three truly lovely cards and very classy ones at that but my fave is the last one by a whisker.


  6. Three gorgeous cards, if I had to choose it would be the second one, just because it has a butterfly. When I first saw this folder I wasn't sure, but now I have seen your cards it will be on my wish list.

  7. I love all 3 and what a fantastic embossing folder, very pretty :)

  8. How to choose Carol? I like all of them but my preference would be for the last one if I really had to chose. :)
    Gorgeous folder - ooooh! I can feel my purse sighing.

  10. Hi Carol - I'm a big Ribbon fan so my fav would be the last one with just ribbon, but they are all lovely! Esther xx

  11. Hi Carol, 3 brilliant cards,for me its the last one, it just looks so elegant. I know what you mean about it not being your thing, I felt the same as you. But you did great cards. Hugs Rita xx

  12. I liked all three cards perky and elegant at the same time, if that is possible. My fave is the third, but whoever receives them will love them.

  13. All good but my personal fave is just the ribbon - mind you, it's good enough without the ribbon OR the butterfly - call me a heretic!!!


  14. Really super cards, what a bit of luck this folder arrived today, it's really pretty!
    In fact I prefer the last card, with the ribbon and without the butterfly!
    Thanks so much once more!

  16. Beautiful cards, all of them, but I really love the last one with the ribbon and no butterfly. It's just gorgeous.

  17. Three beautiful and wonderful cards.
