Just for you card by Julianne McKenna-De Lumen

Hello everyone! 
It's Julianne here, joining you today, and sharing a very quick, simple and elegant card, created using the Magnolia Lane paper range. 
I have a friend who has just begun to fight that horrible "C" word, so I thought I would create a card to send her, to let her know that I am thinking of her, and sending her positive thoughts and wishes. I have kept the card simple and elegant, so as not to be overwhelming with colour and details. 
To create this card, all you need is one piece of ivory cardstock (or any colour that you prefer) cut to 6 1/16" x 8 2/16". Fold the card in half to create a card. Next you will need three pieces of paper (I've used scrap pieces in shade of pink) cut to 3 12/16" x 5 12/16", 2" x 4 12/16", and 1.5" x 4". You will also need a piece of lace or ribbon, slightly wider than the card, a rossette for the centre of the card, a square chipboard frame, and a chipboard sentiment for the card. 
Begin by framing each piece of paper with ivory cardstock, creating a thin border around the paper's edge.
Starting with the largest piece of paper, adhere it to the front cover of the card. But don't adhere right to the edge, as you will need to tuck a strip of lace underneath. 
Next, add the middle sized piece of paper, slightly off-centre, and to the left.  
Finally, add the smallest piece of paper, off centre, and to the left hand side of the card.
Adhere the lace over the middle section of the card, and tuck in under the edges of the largest sheet of paper. 
Using ivory embossing powder, emboss both the frame and sentiment. Adhere the frame to the centre of the card, over the lace. Next, adhere the rosette to the centre of the frame. 
Adhere the embossed sentiment to the lower right corner of the card. Finish the card with pink and ivory pearls, and two die-cut ephemera butterflies.
