All Occasion Dazzling Hunkydory

I LOVE this Hunkydory paper (Flutterbye Wishes kit), but had used all the die cuts that went with it.  So, I made a quick little greeting using Spellbinders dies and gold Dazzles and a scrap of pink foil paper from my stash. I decided "for you" made a lovely generic sentiment that I could add to later if I wished.  For example, I could add the words "on your birthday" down the left side of the paper in the blank area if I wanted to use it as a birthday card.

 I made a ribbon border but didn't want it covering up the butterfly so cut on either side of the wing with my craft knife so I could slip the ribbon behind the butterfly.  I also added a few extra touches to the paper.  I took some of the pink flower Dazzles and added them to the center of the smaller flowers.  I also added small Dazzles dots from this same sheet to accent the butterfly wings and the smallest of the flowers.
