Today I'm sharing a new-to-me style of card that is easy to construct, but looks stunning, at least I think it does! I found the instructions over at Emma's blog Lady & the Stamp. The tutorial for the Box Arm Card is the top one listed on the right side of Emma's blog and can be downloaded. Thanks Emma!
Purple is one of my favorite colors and I love the way the three tones I've used for the card work together. The larger butterfly was created using a die that was a freebie in a magazine last year and I've once again used the butterfly punch from Martha Stewart for the smaller ones. The design has been completed by adding a peel-off sentiment and some teardrop gems that have long been in my stash.

I love the style and there are so many ways to decorate it and I can see a lot more of them being created in the future. Thanks again for the tutorial Emma!
