For my card, I used a sentiment from the Beautiful You set.  For two of the squares in the layout, I used the Bountiful Backgrounds set to stamp the patterns.  You can't see it very well in the photo, but the background of the card was embossed using a Sizzix Texture plate. 

For finishing touches, I added a Scalloped Sparkler to the bow and punched a butterfly out of vellum to add to the sentiment panel.  Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend!  SUPPLIES USED:  Stamps- Beautiful You, Bountiful Backgrounds (Verve Stamps); Ink- Onyx Black (Versafine), Fresh Snow (PTI);  Paper- Pure Poppy, , True Black, Bitty Dot Basics (PTI); Accessories- Plain Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Texturz Plate Kit #3 (Sizzix), ribbon (Darice), Scalloped Sparkler (Webster's Pages), butterfly punch (Martha Stewart), bling (Doodlebug Designs);  Finished card measures 4.25" square
