Happy Boss's Day

My friend asked me to make a card for her boss in honor of Happy Boss's Day.

This is what I came up with. I stamped and cut out the butterfly then addedsome pearls to the center. It is mounted onto the oval using 3-d foam tape. My friend wanted a Happy Boss's Day sentiment so I typed it up and printed it. I embossed the oval shape and the kraft cardstock using my Cuttlebug embossing folders. I added a bit of distressing on the pink cardstocks. and I added stitchings to my card. It's my favorite thing to do because it adds a nice texture to the edges of the cardstocks.
Hope you all had a great day today :-)

I used the color challenge from CR84FN65. These colors are so pretty to work with.

The sketch I used is from The Sweet Stop
