Butterfly Blues

I was checking through my photos and came across this easel card which I made a few months ago.
I had treated myself to a few Craftwork Cards goodies and wanted to have a play with them.
The card base is a CWC pre-scored easel card. I love the scallop shape on this one.
From the 'Pocket Full of Patterned Paper' CD I printed two identical sheets of this script paper with a flower border so that I could decoupage the flowers. It was a bit of a labour of love cutting out the tiny leaves but I think it was worth it. I affixed them with silicone glue to enable me to angle them, then added a few different sized clear gems to the flower centres.
The butterfly is cut from the same paper, using a Spellbinders Flights of Fancy die.
The white circle is plain card die cut with an x-cut circle die.
For the sculpted flowers I used a mixture of retro flower die cuts, which I scored to shape the petals, and some more of the printed script paper, die cut with Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms dies, rolled up to make the flower centres.
The picture below shows the flowers in a little more detail.
Finally I added a message from the CWC Vintage Kit and used two card candi dots as faux brads.

I love the fresh feel to this card, hope you have enjoyed sharing it with me :)
