Love-ly Monday

Hello there! It's time for our weekly Monday meet-up. I'll keep it brief's been a crazy ol' day so far and I'm not crossing off items from my to-do list as fast as I'd hoped. Still, mustn't complain - I did find the time to craft!

I made a lovey-dovey card. It's not for my husband. No sir! He conveniently kicked his socks under the bed this morning, which Peanut discovered and... the fate of those socks were sealed. Remember what happened to our Christmas tree? Enough said. So, no card for hubby, no cookie for Peanut and time out for both. Instead, I'm sending this card off to my sister. She doesn't leave her socks lying about the house.

The papers are from Papermania's Parkstone Pink 6x6 pad. 
I wrapped some sheer white ribbon across the horizontal panel. 

The stamp butterfly and sentiment are from Clearly Besotted's Butterfly Additions set, 
which I heat embossed onto vellum with fine white EP.  I cut the vellum with SB Elegant Oval 
die and inked the edges with TH Spun Sugar. I also went to town with some bling.

On the inside I stamped a butterfly border with Versamagic Baby Pink.
