Butterfly Diaper Cake & Card

It must be "baby season", because I have another diaper cake for you today!

This confection is for a sweet little girl with a butterfly-themed nursery.  As soon as I saw this paisley ribbon at Hobby Lobby, I knew it was perfect for her pink and green room.  I was still stuck on the topper until a few days ago when she came two weeks early -- uh oh!  Then I found a cute monogram coat hanger on Michael's "fabulous finds" aisle with her initial.

Project Details:
  • Papers - My Mind's Eye - Simply Delightful and Bohemia
  • Cricut Cuts - butterfly from Create a Critter, page 64
  • Cuttlebug Embossing - D'vine Swirls, Kassie's Brocade, Perfectly Paisley, Swiss Dots, Victoria
  • Ribbon - pink satin by Robert Stanley Collection; paisley by The Ribbon Boutique
  • Floral - pink floral bush from Hobby Lobby
  • Other - lots of inking on butterflies with Colorbox petal point pads in green and pinks

I also made a matching card:

Card Details:
  • Card Base - DCWV Brights (A2)
  • Papers - green stripes by American Crafts - Everyday paperpack; pink textured and non-textured cardstock by The Paper Studio; black and white cardstock from scraps
  • Cricut Cuts - butterfly from Create a Critter, page 64; scalloped background from Elegant Edges, page 23
  • Cuttlebug Embossing - inner butterfly wings with D'vine Swirls; scalloped background with Swiss Dots; pink background with Perfectly Paisley
  • Other - inking with pink Colorbox petal point ink pads; ribbon by The Ribbon Boutique; gemstones from Michaels dollar bin

I had so much fun making such a girly project!  It made me fall in love with the Perfectly Paisley embossing folder that had been sitting unopened in my Cuttlebug bin for far too I want to use it on everything!

I'm entering this project into the following challenge:
