Clean and Simple Days 6 and 7

This is my second post of the day. To see my For Your Inspiration post, just scroll down. :-)

I had three really busy and really long days at work to start this week, so I had zero chance to even look at the Clean and Simple Classes 6, 7, and 8. Today I looked over Class 6 - Simple Embellishments, and Class 7 - Plainly White, and I decided to combine the two into one card. I think I used just about every technique we were shown in the tutorial videos!

My "embellishment" is my butterfly. I've used a negative die cut again because I just LOVE negative die cuts.  I have another card to make for these two classes, and I might get to that one tomorrow.

Here is today's effort:
I used my Stampin'Up! Butterfly punch twice (patterned paper and vellum), I edged the butterfly (and covered myself) in Dazzling Diamonds glitter, I stamped the sentiment in Pretty in Pink to keep the soft feel of the card.

I like it.

Your little butterfly embellishment is so delicate and the twine body is a brilliant idea too. I'm playing catch-up with class head is spinning with ideas!
