Tri-Fold Elements of Style

I have already made several cards using the Elements of Style set, but I just love it!  Pretty ... pretty ... pretty.  I started with a tri-fold card in shimmery white then sponged Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate all over it for a "vintage" look. 

The flowers were stamped in StazOn Timber Brown.  I had planned to color in the flowers, but decided I liked them plain on this card.

The butterfly was stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock in Close to Cocoa, sponged with Blush Blossom and cut out.  I then added Dazzling Diamonds glitter around the edges using VersaMark and Heat & Stick Powder.

To finish the card, I tied a piece of 5/8" sheer chocolate ribbon to keep it closed.

I think with the right sentiment this would make a nice wedding card.
