Papertrey Ink July Blog Hop

I love the inspiration photo for this month's challenge and had some ideas in my head for the card. 

The pattern on the butterfly was created with different layers of stamping.  First, I stamped Fancy Flourishes in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on PTI Autumn Rose cardstock.  Then I stamped the second of a 3 step rose image from The Sweet Life in PTI Fresh Snow ink.  The third of the 3 step rose image was stamped in versamark ink and then heat embossed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Bonjour Butter color embossing powder. The sentiment is from the Iconic Images stamp set stamped on Rustic Cream cardstock.
Here are the supplies I used and the result of the stamping before die cutting:

I used a Memory Box butterfly die to cut out the focal images.  Added some lace trim to the sides.  Layered on Autumn Rose cardstock and the base is Vintage Cream cardstock.

Here is a side view and you can see how I shaped the butterfly before adhering it to the cardstock to give it interest.
