summer time flowers...

stamps:bloomin' marvellous (sale-a-bration) from stampin' up!, everyday greetings from wild rose studio, for her sentiments (set 20) from lili of the valley
inks: archival ink pads (chrome yellow, venetian orange, vermillion & sap green), ice grey1 promarker
cardstock: craftwork cards digi cardstock, 6x4" card blank
punch: bitty butterfly punch from stampin' up!
extras: adhesive gems

first i cut a mat of digi cardstock to fit my card blank. I stamped the flowers in the different colours and added in leafs in between. I used a scrap of digi cardstock to stamp two butterflies , which I punched out. I bend these slightly and ( only using tape in the centre) glue them onto my card. I added extra dimension to the leaves and flowers by using the promarker to add shadows.  I inked the card blank in orange, then used the same coloured ink to stamp my two sentiments in either corners. 
i glued the mat on to the card blank and added a final bit of sparkle with some adhesive gems, on a few of the flowers.
