Card exchange cards - stamping, ribbon and a large layered greeting

I made this card for one of my Card Exchange partners for May.  I started with an odd envelope and made an ivory card to fit inside.  I chose the decorative paper and then set about making my decorative greeting for the front.  I die cut (Nestabilities) the greeting (SU) which was stamped on white cardstock and layered it onto an orange embossed oval.  Layered next onto a funky oval from my stash which I sponged with yellow and orange.  Next, I added a large label (TH) which I embossed and sponged to coordinate with the decorative paper.  I punched holes in the ends of the label die cut and added a burnt orange ribbon which I adhered to the back of the background using double sided tape.  To finish off my card I adhered this large element to the front of my ivory card.  Still thinking it needed a bit of something, I watercoloured a small butterfly in yellow and added it using a small piece of 3D foam tape.  Better!!          Therese
