Bling, Butterfly, and Bow in Purple and Green

This card was made with Cheery Lynn dies Swedish Spring Oval Frame and Butterfly Small die cut.  I used a lavendar card base and attached a die cut in green  cardstock over an oval of metallic lavendar card stock. I stamped the crocus using a Flourishes stamp " A Year in Flowers" stamped in green and colored with copics that was cut with a scalloped oval die. Added purple rhinestones to the flower cutouts on the frame and added the butterfly also colored with copics and glaze pens. Rhinestones added to the body of butterfly.  Finished with a sentiment and bow. Rhinestone flowers were added to 2 corners.

A beautiful spring card, love the crocus flowers - one of my favourites as they are so bright after the winter snow. Lovely die cut butterfly too. Thanks for sharing with us at an OBAG, Jx
