Love Is....

I made this card using this love is sentiment stamp. I'm not sure what company the stamp is from. The verse is...
Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast,
it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking
It is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil,
but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
~ 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

I made this card as an anniversary card but it would also work as a wedding or valentine's day card. The base of my card is white. I embossed a smaller piece of cardstock using a cuttlebug embossing folder (swirls) and backed it in black. I also backed the image in black. I added a piece of black velvet ribbon across the embossed piece just under the verse. I punched butterflies out of lavender cardstock and added one to the upper right corner of the verse and one to the left side of the ribbon. I added lavender rhinestones to the butterflies and to the bottom right corner of the card. I am entering this card into the following challenges:
