Gold cardstock, purple cardstock, 65 lb. white cardstock, mounting tape, glue gun, Memento Dye Inkpad - Dandelion and Grape Jelly, Mini-Mister, styrofoam round flower centers. 

Create a 5 3/4 x 8 inch card from a 12 x 12 inch  heavy white cardstock.  Cut a base layer at 5 1/2 x 7 3/4 inches from dark purple cardstock.  Adhere the layers using double sided tape, flower stigma.

Cut a frame die from the new release - Eyelet Lace Frame Die from gold cardstock.  I use wax paper between the die and cardstock for easy release of the paper from the die.  Any remaining pieces that may have not released from the cardstock can be removed using the Tool N' One.   Adhere the lace frame to the purple base layer.  

Stamp the flower petals from the Botanical Rose Stamp Set and the Delightful Daisy Stamp Set using Memento Desert Sand ink.   Die cut with the coordinating die.   Sponge the Botanical Rose petals with Memento Grape Jelly and then blend out slightly with Lilac Posies.  Allow the ends  of the petals to remain white.  Lightly sponge the center of the daisy petals  with Olive Grove ink and the inner part of each petal with yellow.  Blend toward  petal tips but leave the end of the petals white as shown.  Using the sharp tip from the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, puncture a hole in the center of each petal.  Mist the petals with a mini-mister lightly on the back and shape with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Allow to dry.   Using a craft brush, paint the styrofoam center (stigma) with 3D Paint.  purple and green.   allow to dry.   Assemble the petals, stigma and stamen using a hot glue gun.  Sponge the leaves with the green ink and shape with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.   Adhere the the flowers and leaves.   Add additional  green and purple flower centers to  the arrangement.  

Stamp the sentiment from the Singing in the Rain Collection - Raindrop Sentiments using Elderberry Ink on heavy white paper.   Die cut the sentiment and purple mat layer using the nesting Eyelet Circle and Basics Small Dies.  Pop the sentiment up on the purple circle mat using mounting tape.   Add another strip of mounting tape to the sentiment and mount in the center of the card.  

Fussy cut the butterfly from the Butterfly Dreams paper collection.  Attach the two black stamen for the antennas.   Adhere the butterfly above the sentiment using Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.   

Thank you for stopping by and and hope you found this card inspirational and easy instructions!
