Butterfly Garden

Hello Everyone!!  Today's card is one that I was lucky enough to have published in Cardmaking, Stamping and Papercraft in December (Vol 17 No 12) as part of a trio of cards!  Since it is now March, I figured it would be OK to finally put it on my blog!  :)

I loved this set when it came out!  What could be prettier than a butterfly in a garden of flowers!  The base is constructed of Regal Rose, White, Kiwi Kiss and MME Hazel DP.  The middle panel is white (punched with Woodland Branch) and topped with more Hazel DP.  Across these layers I've added some white organdy ribbon, pink satin ribbon and honeydew twine.  I stamped the butterfly centre from Butterfly Garden in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copic Markers (BG0000, BG11, BG72, Y21, Y35, V01, V15, YG13, YG17, R81, R83, R85, YR21, YR24, E29, 0).
Next I stamped the border in Memento Rose Bud and cut it out into a ring using Large Circle Nestabilities and popped it up on X-press It Foam Tape.  I matted this panel with Regal Rose cut with the matching scallop circle nestabilities.  Finally I added a pearl flourish to the side, a pink bow topped with button and twine and white pearls to the corners.
