Spring Bouquets

Hello, everyone! I made a card for Timeless Tuesday #167. The challenge is to use butterflies on your projects and here is my take.

Ahhh... I love this beautiful image ever since I first saw it and finally got it the other day and I couldn't wait to play! =)

The image is from Spring Bouquet set and it's stamped on PTI's Rustic White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then cut and embossed using a Labels 18 die. It's then inked with Wild Honey distress ink while the paper was still in the die.

I stamped the same bouquet image on the card base using second generation Wild Honey for a little interest before popping the colored image on the card with foam squares. The sentiment is included in the Spring Bouquet set. A few patterned paper punched butterflies are added as embellishments to finish the card.

That's it for now. Hope you have a beautiful day! =)

Thanks for stopping by!

Alice, this looks incredible. I love that you used a label die to cut that image. LOVE your coloring and loe that you used the same image for the background. I never think of that.
Hugs and smiles
