Best of Butterflies Anniversary - Technostamper Challenge #259

What a gorgeous day it was today.  I almost expected to see the flowers blooming and the butterflies flitting overhead.  But, of course, I didn't see that, so I created a card with butterflies on it.
This card is for the Technostamper Challenge here






I started with a Primrose Petal card stock base, which was layered with Whisper White card stock, then a layer of 2 patterns of the Birds of a Feather DSP.  A stitched satin ribbon in Primrose Petals was placed over the seam of the 2 DSP.

To create the focal image, I first stamped an image from Everything Eleanor in Crumb Cake - stamping off once so as not to make the colour too strong.  This I cut out.
The butterflies were stamped using the rock and roll technique - with Primrose Petals and Island Indigo inks.  They were cut out, and attached to the cut-out Crumb Cake piece using glue dots.  A strip of 4 rhinestones were attached to their bodies.

This unit was attached to the DSP using dimensionals.

For the embellishments at the top right of the card, using an Itty Bitty Punch, I punched out 3 Primrose Petals flowers.  These were attached to Itty Bitty buttons with glue dots, and a rhinestone was attached to the top of each button.

Here's a list of materials and supplies used:

Stamps: Best of Butterflies, Everything Eleanor, A Word for You
Inks: Crumb Cake, Primrose Petals, Island Indigo
Papers: Primrose Petals, Whisper White, Bird of a Feather DSP
Accessories: 1/4" stitched satin Primrose Petals ribbon, Itty Bitty flower punch, Itty Bitty buttons, rhinestones, dimensionals, glue dots.

Hope you enjoyed the card.  Thanks for stopping by.
