Happy hello card

Hi everyone!  I had so much fun making today's card.  I combined some of my old loves, silk ribbon, flowers and Label shaped dies!  This time I used the Labels Seventeen and to get the white panel 1/8" smaller than the black I traced the inside of the die and hand trimmed it out.  To disguise any lopsided cuts, I lightly distressed the edges before gluing it down.
I also used the Valor embossing folder.  Spellbinders folders are unique in that they are double sided, yep it's like getting 2 for the price of 1!  My card uses side B, but both sides are pretty, here they are:
Oh and see the cute little butterflies?  I cut them out of patterned paper and added a tiny gem to the center.  This card makes me happy, I love the colors and all the pretty accents!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  Here's a close up picture.
