Summertime Butterfly Card by Sue

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Sue has made a lovely card to share, I hope you enjoy it.
Sue has used the Hero Arts Cling Butterflies stamps & Echo Park Sweet Summertime Papers to create a pretty & summery feel to the card....just right for this time of year.

Products Used:
Echo Park Paper Co- Sweet Summertime Paper kit
Stamps: Hero Arts Clings- Butterflies (CG130), Hero Arts Clear stamps- Sending Smiles (the flower)
Cardstocks: Xpress It Copic Blending cardstock and Moss cardstock
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Copics: Y15, Y17, Y35, Y38, YR68, R05, R35, R37, R43, YG63, YG67
Silk ribbon (coloured with Copic marker Y35)
Rhinestones (coloured with Copic markers Y35, YR68)
Dies: Spellbinder Circles Nestabilities and MFT die-namics- Fresh Cut Grass
We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper
Dimensional Magic
Spica Glitter pen - Clear

Stamp the butterfly and the flower onto Copic blending card stock and colour with Copics, highlight with clear spica pen.  Cut out, use dimensional magic on the dots of the butterfly, leave aside to dry.

Colour a 200mm length of silk ribbon with the Y35 Copic Marker, allow to dry.

From the paper pack, cut cloud paper DL size (100mm x 210mm), cut stripes 100mm x 80mm.  Attach the stripes to the clouds, conceal the join with the adhesive scallop border from the elements stickers. 
Add the ribbon and finish with a bow.

Cut out the ATC size piece, stick to the cloud paper.

Using the Nestabilities Circles dies, cut a circle from the yellow dotted paper, and another using the floral paper, but cut the center out of the second one with a smaller circle, leaving a circular border about 8-10mm wide.

Stamp the flower onto the dotted paper, colour with Copics.

Cut a short strip of the grass (from moss cardstock) using the Die-namics border die.

Assemble the circles, grass, flower and butterfly.

 When sticking the butterfly on, only add glue to the body and gently bend the wings up, like wise only add glue to the center of the flower and gently bend the petals up.

Lastly add the coloured rhinestones to the centres of the flowers.

Voila.... all complete!!
