All Things Beautiful

This card is made for the sketch challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs Blog.  I started with a white card base and added a layer of dark maroon, then a layer of decorative cardstock.  I sponged distress ink around the edges.  The verse is from the new Faith set at ODBD.  I stamped it in red distress ink onto a white diecut from a Nellie Snellen die.  I wove some maroon ribbon around the edges, then layered it on a pink diecut, also from a Nellie Snellen die.  I sponged distress ink around the edges and added a small pearl to each petal. 

The dark maroon border strip on the left side is cut from a third Nellie Snellen die.  I used distress ink to stamp a beautiful butterfly image, also from the Faith set, on the strip.  I added sheer pink ribbon and bow, then some flowers with a pearl center.
