The Card Concept, How Does Your Garden Grow?

I just went with the overall garden theme, blossoms and butterflies.
And I adore their Mood Board phot, looks like a pretty little Cape Cod Cottage!

Dies R Us, Flowers/Spring

Thing 1: Use a basic shaped metal frame die to enter the Double Trouble challenge. 
 Thing 2: Use a metal die that DRU sells and include the theme Spring/Flowers to enter the DRU challenge and the  random draw from Double Trouble. 
 Thing 3: Use a metal frame die and add a flower or butterfly to project for another entry to the Double Trouble challenge.

This was initially made for the MFT Sketch Challenge, 
but I forgot to Post yesterday, oopsie!

This card is such a simple design, felt very uncomfortable to make. lol
But I did manage to get some layers in there!

I used the MFT Products;
Fairy Happy stamp and dies.
Blueprints #12 die.
I Pick You Stamp set.

My Stitched Rectangle Frame is layered 3 times.
Amalgam Black and Marina Mist inks.
Clear Embossing Powder.

Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.
Copic Markers.
Foam Dots.
Studio Katia Wedding Bells Mix.
Sakura Glitter Pens.

Still managed to get those layers in 
and a wee bit of dimension.

Thanks for buzzing by!
