A Time To Celebrate Card

This card uses a mix of stamps some from my stash but the flower stamp was one of the freebies from the "Simply Cards And Papercrafts" issue 153 magazine.

This card started off as something else and as so often happens ends as something totally different.  I stamped the flowers & the butterfly onto white cardstock and coloured them using water colour pencils.  I gave a hint of gold (pen) to add a little extra interest. 

I embossed a piece of cardstock using a Cuttlebug embossing folder and then played with positions and background colours before sticking anything down.  Once I was happy I glued, I gave a feeling of dimension by layering the flowers in a decoupage style.

I then looked for a suitable sentiment.  I have a lot of stamps but sometimes it is very hard to find the right one.  I seem to think that this one came free with a magazine many years ago. I stamped the image and then die cut it into a circle.    The butterfly was then glued and positioned.

Inside the card, there is also a stamped and coloured image of the flower used on the front of the card.
