Birthday Card for Grandma!

Hey there friendly followers! I just thought I'd share a card I made last night. This is a birthday card for my grandma.

 it turned out a LOT better than I had imagined it would when I sketched it out! I recently got a new stamp set from Stampin' Up. it is called Essence of Love. I really like it! when stamping the main focal image I decided I wanted to do a 2 tone image. I used SU Chocolate Chip ink for the bottom part, glorious green to ink the clover and pink passion for the top part.
I used the flowered image from the set and the butterfly. I used ballet blue and pale plum for the butterflies. I made an extra butterfly in each color and then adhered it with a rolled up "zot" (glue dot) and then glossy accents (to give it a stronger hold) then I stickled the wings in diamond stickles so that they would sparkle! I also stickled the circles of the sentiment. Sentiment is from SU! Circle of Friendship.

I used my embossing tool to give the wings a little curve by wrapping them gently around the end of it. Added a few prima pearls and a hand tied bow (NO easy bow or anything like that used, I hand tied this puppy, first try haha!) The cardstock is from the 6x6 fairy flora pad from prima.

I hope you like this card as much I do!! I told hubby that I'm going to have to buy a few more 6x6 pads of this paper just to be able to recreate this card over and over. LOL

Thanks for looking!!

here is a pic of the card on it's back so u can see the 3d elements :)

Keep on Scrappin', and please, be kind to one another!
