In stitches

For this card I cut  the shape with a nestie die using an offcut of tutti frutti paper that I've had for ages and ages. I inked the 'swirling wings' stamp by Lindsay Mason with versamark and heat embossed with gold detail. I then swiped roughly around the edges with versamark and heat embossed. I didn't have a long enough piece of stitched ribbon, so I used two small pieces as the shape was going to go over the middle. The flowers are a mix of Dovecraft cupcake boutique and Poundland.

The flowers and butterfly were inspired by the photo for Addicted to stamps and more 50:
