Cocoa kisses & marshmallow hugs

This card is for the recipe on Squigglefly 28 to use 1 ribbon or lace, 2 brads or eyelets and three die cuts - the nestie shape used for the main image, which is a digital one by Squigglefly, coloured with copics and the two butterflies cut with a Sizzix green die (a long time since I've used these). The image was distressed with mustard seed DI before the nestie was removed, leaving the white rim.

The embossed dot background was run through my cuttlebug with a crafts too embossing folder, using a core'dination card that showed through a darker yellow when sanded. The lace and brads are from stash.

The pieces of card used for this were offcuts, so this is another for Pixie's crafty snippets 30. Why do I never get the bottom of the offcuts boxes (you note, I said boxes)?

Colours are for Party time Tuesday 77:
