Embossed Butterfly Field

We had experienced 4 days of stormy weather of windspeed of 70-80km/hour with my bicycle almost standing still, (I felt as if the time has stopped!).

Finally the lovely weather has arrived today with lots of sunshine and the temperature is about 8 degrees celcius.  This is my 3 posting of today and another is coming soon.

Here is a card which I made with the stamp from HA Butterfly Field which matches very well with the weather right now - it feels almost like spring!  The image is stamped on a vellum and is heat embossed with baby pink powder.  If you look closely, there is another layer of colours underneath this vellum which gives a lovely spring color to the field! 

If you scroll down, there is a picture with these colours which are distressed with peeled paint, mix of tangelo and dandelion followed by broken china.

As for the ribbon, I've lightly sew the middle part to give this effect.
