Butterfly Garden Card for SOUS

Here is this weeks sketch on SOUS!!

And here is my take on it, finally cutting into my beautiful Butterfly Garden papers!
I stamped and fussy cut the flowers leaves and butterflies, coloring them with iridescent watercolors. I used Spellbinders lacey circle and circle dies and a pretty sentiment in my stash, used my sewing machine to stitch some borders on the background paper and the circle, and finished the card off with a pretty brown ribbon.

Hiya Cathi!
Lovely card! I'm kinda a sucker for any stamping
and I love that you made them look like high quality
die cuts! But of course, I am sure this is another
notch up with the painting in person (another fav of mine!)
Perfectly done!
Thanks for having joined us!
