Clean and Simple Card - Sketch 40

I absolutely LOVE how this card turned out. I knew what I wanted to try for this challenge, but wasn't sure how it was all going to come together. Claire at Waltzingmouse makes made these adorable butterflies out of ribbon. I knew that was what I wanted to try and they were perfect for this sketch. I first found the ribbon colors - then matched the patterned paper with it (Heidi Grace Midnight Kisses). Dug around in my stash and found the solid papers (the lighter ones are gray tone to match the ribbon). I don't have either stamps or a texture plate that has writing on it for the background so I went with a different texture plate that gives the same effect. I don't have an oval scallop die, so I cut the lighter gray with the die I do have, attached it to the darker gray and then trimmed around the oval with a scallop scissors. I did the same with the band that goes across the card. I used a silver pen to draw the butterfly antennae on the card.
