Heartfelt Creations Congratulations Card - Butterfly and Peony's

Welcome!   It's Inspiration Wednesday at Heartfelt Creations.     I don't know about you but I just love butterflies and Spring!  I lived in the East Coast for a couple years and my area had a Butterfly Bush.   I don't know if it is possible to grown them in California but I plan to give it a whirl.

Adhere the layers with double sided tape.

Stamp the Butterfly on Copic Alcohol Ink using Memento Tuxedo Black on X-Press It Blending Cardstock.   Stamp the large peony and the buds  from the Peony Bud and Blossom Die using Distress Ink - Antique Linen.  Color the images using Copic Alcohol Ink Markers -   (Flower- Y000, Y00, Y11, Y13, Y15, Y26, Y28, YG03, YG25, YG45,  Butterfly - YR 04, YR07, YR09, YR18, YR20, YR24, YR27, Y00, Y11, Y15, E47, E44, E42, E40,  C3, C5, C7).  Accent the little dots on the edges of the butterfly wings using opaque white ink.   Cut the images with the corresponding die.  Die cut 4 additional butterflies on black cardstock.   Stamp the leaves using the Large Sweet Peony Stamp Set on green cardstock.  Die cut with the corresponding die set.  Sponge the edges using Memento Olive Green ink.  Shape using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.

Using Designer Adhesive, glue the leaves under the large peony.

Using the  Butterfly Dreams Paper Collection, find the sentiment and fussy cut. Adhere the sentiment using mounting tape.
