Can I love this card?  Please?  Any project that's as easy to create as this one should certainly be loved, and anyone who receives a card like this would surely think that you went to a lot of trouble to make it!  I don't know the correct name for this technique, but I began by stamping the large image with VersaMark onto glossy card stock and gold-embossed it.  I then stamped the butterflies with VersaMark and silver-embossed them.  Next, I sponged Soft Suede, Always Artichoke, and Not Quite Navy ink--randomly--on the card stock.  When finished with the sponging, I tissued off the ink that was resisted by the embossing and used the heat tool to "re-shine" the embossed images.  I used the Eyelet Border punch on the Brushed Gold card stock and then dry-embossed it with the "Vintage Wallpaper" embossing folder.  This card was finished with a crochet trim bow, topped with a Vintage Adornment flower, and the "hello" tag.  The stamped images are from the "Bliss" and "Tiny Tags" stamp sets, and the card stock colors are Very Vanilla and Baja Breeze.

That card is gorgeous. I may be CASE'ing it later! Sure looks like it takes a long time to create.
