Spring Butterfly

The Sring like colours of this card are inspired by the above picture.  I made my own background by stamping swirls onto rainbow coloured paper with a dye ink.  The flowers are a digital download print which I printed onto pearl card before fussy cutting and shaping.  I added some stickles to the centres.  To make the butterfly I first stamped and heat embossed onto parchment paper.  I then dry embossed the butterfly using an embossing tool before attaching with silicone glue.
