With Love on your Birthday

The current Cuttlebug Mania challenge is 'Ribbon' and I made this card following the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.   I'm also entering the Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge.

Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk 
Stamp: Sentiment (magazine freebie)
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Four, Crafty Ann Butterfly 7, Butterfly (magazine freebie)
Embossing: Crafts-Too 'Dandilion Time' embossing folder, Kars tan embossing mat
Ink: Mememto Rich Cocoa
Card: Dark brown and white silk
Other: Dark brown ribbon

I embossed white card with the Dandilion embossing folder, trimmed it to size and wrapped brown ribbon around the lower section before layered it onto brown card.   I then attached this to the card blank.  I die-cut and embossed a white label, stamped the sentiment and attached it to the card with foam tape.  I die-cut the magazine freebie butterfly and attached it above the sentiment.   To finish I die-cut the Crafty Ann butterfly, trimmed the body section and attached it to the butterfly on my card.
