Beau Chateau

I have just got back from Chris's (sis-in-law) after spending a few hours crafting with her and her friend Anita. We have had a splendid time and an excellent lunch, followed by delicious cream cake.
Here is the card that I have made (cos Chris's and Anita's were slightly different) - using Beau Chateau DSP, Marina Mist Cardstock and ink, and Charming stampset.
The Textured Impressions Designer frames Embossing Folder was used to emboss the frame and then the flower was stamped and cut to fit inside it.
A slit was made in the frame, and seam binding ribbon was threaded between the frame and the oblong (stamped flower) paper.
A cardstock ribbon was made using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, and a tiny butterfly made with the Beautiful Wings embosslit die A little bow was made to match, with a white brad to fasten, and Basic Pearls put the finishing touches to it.
