Butterfly Wishes

Hello Everyone!!!  Today I was inspired to stamp by the Featured Stamper Challenge!  I love this challenge and the chance to view different galleries!!  I'm also entering this in the last Flutter By Wednesday challenge to use a butterfly, fairy or angel.  Today I chose MaryRose's Rudolph card, changing the colours and image, moving the ribbon bow and adding some pearls.  I had the joy of playing with the new Butterflies and Blossoms set by Flourishes!  Isn't this image DIVINE!!!  *happy sigh*.  I actually had to look up what sort of flower this was - it's a Clematis and comes in a variety of colours although the most common are shades of purple, so that's what I decided to go with today.  :)

I started with a base of green bazzill and layered with purple bazzill, white and some MME DP that I found in my stash.  Across the card I've added some white crochet lace and topped with green satin ribbon.  The image is from Butterflies and Blossoms and has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card.  I've coloured it with Copic Markers - Butterfly: YR00, YR02, YR07, YR24, B000, B02; Flowers: BV00, BV02, BV04, 0, Y21, Y35, Y38, G20, G21, G24.  I cut the image out with Large Square Nestabilities and matted with purple bazzill cut with Lacey Square Nestabilities and popped it up on foam tape.  Next I added a green satin bow and topped it with a white button (actually it's kind of mother of pearl, don't know why it looks green here) and some silver cord.  To finish I added some tiny Kaisercraft Snow Pearls to the corners.

I would've had to look that up to to know what flower that is. You colored it beautifully. I love the way this just all goes together.
