Sometimes it's all about the paper

This is the card I made for the Inspiration Challenge, IC102 - Tapestried Jacket, at SCS today. I saw the jacket and immediately knew the paper I wanted to use. Beleve it or not, but this bit of paper came out of my scrap drawer and perfectly fit the card front, with the butterfly almost smack-dab in the middle. I looked at it and just couldn't bring myself to cover it up with a stamped image. I opted for the little stamps in the Circle of Friendship set by SU and double-matted it onto some coordinating scraps which were punched out with my CM circle punches. I added the sheer, hot-pink ribbon, some flower brads and just a touch of Crystal Stickles on the butterfly. Inside I stamped something appropriate for birthday.

This is the first time I really focussed on the paper and not a stamped image and, I like it.
