Breath of Spring

This card was made for the JustRite Friday Challenge 054.  This was a sketch challenge.   This was fun as I used my new Grand Calibur Scalloped Squares for the card base.  The card is a 5.5 x 5.5 base.  The paper used is from Cosmo Cricket "Pixie-Licious".  I used three different papers from the set to complete the card.  A strip was cut and edged with lace which was then added to the DP.  The stamped flower is from the JustRite set a Breath of Spring as I do not have any of the new flower sets and were colored with Copic Markers.  This was stamped twice and  a small portion was cut out to add a three dimensional effect.  Happy Birthday was added from the Happy Everything set from JustRite. The stamped image was mounted on a scallop rectangle cut with a Spellbinder die.   Pearls from Amuse make up the center as well as on the Butterfly which was cut with a Spellbinder die and embossed.  A clear glitter pen was used to create a little glimmer to the butterfly. I had distressed it too.  The Butterfly was mounted on yellow ribbon that  is a triple bow.  Large Hero Arts pearls are mounted on the upper right corner.
Hope you enjoy.
