I went a little more subtle with my colors because of the patterned paper I used, but I think it works—in fact I love this card. Very simple layout, but my MFT Die-namics dies and sentiment and some bling really dress it up. I stamped the sentiment, from Clearly Sentimental About Success on some pattern paper with a subtle design using my Die-namics Clearly Sentimental Label die, then popped it up on some foam dots. AFTER, I’d laid down a rhinestone flourish. Then I added the flowers, made using my Die-namics Upsy Daisy dies and my Die-namics Royal Leaves. Oh. My. Word. Do I ever love those leaf dies. So much I have two sets ;-) OK, so then I made a little double butterfly with my Die-namics Butterflies die, added some rhinestones for the body, and popped him (her?) up on the sentiment. Oh! And under the whole thing I added some twine tied in a bow. I love doing that, can you tell ;-)
Here’s the inside, with another sentiment from that set:
Here are the Die-namics dies I used on this card:
