Stampin' Up! Word Play and Floral District

Good Evening Friends! 

By the time you're reading this I'll hopefully be camping! We're heading away for a few days to celebrate Independence Day (and my birthday). 

I was crafting in the wee hours with no one awake in the house when I made this card.  This week's stamping 411 came out of my head, and I honestly didn't have a card in mind, but I LOVE whisper white and lots of layers.  :) 

This weeks' sketch can be simple or more complicated.  I went with simple. :)  Did I mention that I'm diggin all the white?  So first, some measurements.

Base layer 11 x 4 1/4", scored and folded in half at 5 1/2"
Layer 2: 4 x 5 1/4"
Layer 3: 4 x 2 3/8", then scallop edge punched
Layer 4: 4 x 2, embossed
Layer 5: 5" ribbon
Layer 6: 3 strips of Floral District designer paper cut 4" x 3/8 of an inch and punched with a square punch. 
Layer 7: a butterfly, punched with the new butterfly punch out of floral district DSP. 

Dazzling diamonds and a two way glue pen to make it all sparkly and the ultra sparkly new button, with a strip of paper to make a stitch.

Have a great weekend, and an awesome holiday!  :)

rubbah hugs,
