The sentiment (stamped in SU Bordering Blue) was a two-line one, so I had to ink each phrase separately so it would fit in a vertical format. Regarding the background: I don't happen to own any impression plates, so I made do instead with the butterfly die that goes with the Butterfly Dreams set (used for the small and large butterflies). I used a rubber sheet to impress the edge of the die without cutting through the card stock--worked great! Then brayered with SU YoYo Yellow in a gradient that fades toward the right. The sentiment panel was cut with Spellbinders Labels One then trimmed on both sides. A strip of gray ribbon finished it off.
Thanks for looking, and have a nice evening!
