VLV Oct Week4 - Borderline

I love banners and it was a great opportunity to play with some for the VLV Oct week 4 sketch designed by Christyne Kane.  
Here is my take on the sketch and card:
Played around with some new DSP papers from the Subtles collection and is one of my favorite colors, Pool Party along with a new in colors (Baked Brown Sugar) cardstock by SU. They go so well together. Better in person compared to the photo, but I'm sure that's in all cases.
It's a fairly straight forward card without a need for any explanation, but hard for me to not say anything we go: 
Can you guess the stamp set? I'm sure you can, but just in case, It's by Verve and called Borderline which was on my wish list for the longest time and got a few months ago or so. I thought it would be perfect for this card along with the matching die, Mini Classy Label.
For the ink, I used Early Espresso (SU) and I got the little butterflies from the set: Twitterpated along with the matching die, All Aflutter. Whenever there is a matching die, it's a must since it makes it so easy to cut it out. Here I stamped directly onto Pink Pirouette cardstock. 
To finish it off, I used Seam Binding ribbon by Verve's collection called, Stormy Skies Ribbon  which matched up perfectly for this card, button, and added some candy dots on the bottom right hand side.
Once again, don't forget to check out the Viva la Verve Master Challenge thread for all the details on this monthly challenge and a chance to win a Verve gift certificate plus have fun in the process. What do you think of today's card?
