a day to celebrate

Wanting to make something a little different I looked at Joan"s Garden Challenge for this week and here it is.  The challenge is to use flowers and make a pretty card. I hope you can see the many flowers in the design of the card.   I started with Bo Bunny "Back to Basics"  paper and a die from Memory Box "Twirling Vine Frame (cut in white). Very small pearls were added on what appears to be small flowers on the frame.    The card itself is a 5 x 7 in size.  The flowers are from the same paper using a Spellbinder Die "bitty blossoms".  The flowers were tipped with a Copic Marker R85.  The sentiment from Penny Black "Gratitude" was stamped on another Bo Bunny "Back to Basics" paper and edged with the Distress marker Worn Lipstick.  The paper was cut with a Spellbinder oval and placed on top of a Spellbinder "Floral" oval cut from white.  Three pearls were added to finish off the oval.  A butterfly was cut with a Memory Box die from the DP and distressed with Worn Lipstick Distress Stain .  The center of the butterfly was distressed with an distress marker.  This was placed on a silk bow and a pearl pin added.  Close ups can be seen of both the butterfly and the flowers (taken from a top view).  This was fun to make.  Hope you enjoy.
