Butterfly and Roses Card

It's not obvious in the photo, but, this is a 5 x 7 card.  I don't make that size unless it's a special order but I found a pack of 8 black cards with envelopes at Michael's for only .50.  Knowing that was a huge bargain, I picked   them up and put them in my stash.  Today I ran across them and this is what I came up with.

The butterfly is a SU punch, the roses are SU done with StazOn black in on red paper. One rose is attached with a glue dot and the other is pop dotted for dimension.   I used the Cuttlebug on the white background oval, and you can't see them all, but there are five 1.25 inch circles cut in half and layered under the ribbon. 

There's a total of eight cards like this, some have stickles added onto the flower and butterfly and a couple have some black buttons added onto the white oval.

It seems like I learn something each time I lay out a new card.  First, I decided to do the black and white rectangles, then added the circle halves to look like large scallops peeking out under the ribbon.  I wanted to put two flowers and a butterfly in an oval and didn't realize the oval would be so big that you can't see the scallop!  But, it turned out cute anyway!
