Welcome Spring

For this card I started with a brown circle card from The Paper Cut and layered it with one of their pink scalloped circles which was outlined with a gold leafing pen.  I used green and pink pattered paper and die cut the circles and green flower shape using Nellie's Multi Frame Dots Circle die.  The Three Wild Rose Bunch from SweetStamps.com was stamped on Solar White paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers before cutting it out.  Highlight center of flowers using Gold Spica pen.  Welcome Spring from SweetStamps.com was stamped using Distress Embossing ink and embossed with Queen's Gold EP and a gold leafing pen was used to outline the shape.  The butterfly is a paper charm from Amy's Magic, Inc. and is attached so the wings are raised off the card.  I used foam dots to layer the flowers to the card and micro glue dots to attach the tiny pink buttons.
