Hello, Beautiful Butterfly

Back again on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog.

Today I am sharing an All Occasion card with you all!

I started with these beautiful Papers by Authentique, The Gathering
The Dies R Us Store carries so many Paper Pads of beautiful papers.  Using the Circle Link Embossing Folder I added texture to my background.  I die cut 2 of the paper designs using the Tutti Designs Cross Stitch Nesting Rectangles in 2 different sizes. 
Offset and layered these rectangles together and added a Memory Box Orbitz Circle die cut from Teal card stock beneath.   

I die cut my Crafty Ann  Butterfly from Orange card stock.  Cutting the Sue Wilson Rustic Twig Wreath from Teal card stock I then layered that with a Spellbinders Standard Circle die with another pretty paper design.  These die cuts were layered all together and the Butterfly was adhered using a Foam Square for a little dimension.

My sentiment was stamped in Bermuda Bay ink on to

Sheer Ribbon, Buttons and Twine accents.
Candy Dots coated with Glossy Accents.  

A few layers and a bit of dimension.

This card will also be entered into the following Challenges:
