My card was made with  Ferns and Fiddles and the sentiment is from Fanciful Flourishes.  Using  a resist technique I embossed the fern and inked over and around the image using various VersaMagic chalk inks.  I used the darker of the inks around the edge of the panel.  I matted the image with black which really makes it pop with the great butterfly paper from Graphic 45.  I cut out one of the butterflies and popped it up on the image.  Lastly I added a luxurious piece of black May Arts Silk ribbon which I ran through a bronze buckle embellishment. 

Please come and celebrate with us!!
