Butterfly Tag

A second post today so I can join in the current Less is More Challenge, which closes in a few hours.  The theme is 'Use Something Tactile'.  I bought a roll of deep pink jute in a pound shop several years ago and never used it.  I thought it would be perfect for my card to add something tactile.  It looks more red in the photo, but is a lovely shade of pink IRL, an almost perfect match with the pink around the sentiment. 

The frame was made using two Poppystamps 'Stitched Main Street Tag Dies', which I attached over the jute with foam tape and added white organza ribbon to the top.  The Stampin' Up punched butterfly is embossed with a Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' embossing folder with three tiny pink pearls added for the body.  The background is embossed with a Creative Expressions 'Dotty Daisy' embossing folder.  

I am joining in the following challenges:
