Flowerpot with Butterflies

Flowerpot with butterflies - a sweet scene for springtime.  I like the mix of browns, pinks, and aquas with touches of cream and yellow.  

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) aqua mist (card base), harvest gold (yellow), berry sorbet (deep pink), canyon clay (orangey brown), kraft, sweet blush (pale pink), and rustic cream, with diamond-print paper from Pretty Pastels 8x8 paper pack.
  •  Dies are PTI double-ended banners, fabulous frames, fruit fusion: melon, heart-2-heart #7, flower fusion #3, and heart-2-heart #9 (the wedding cake, upside-down as a flowerpot). 
  • The butterflies are punched with a small EK Success punch.  
  • I added flower stems with a Copic 0.3 sepia multiliner.  
  • The dots and details are Copic markers, R35 for the scallop dots and flower edges, YR24 for the butterfly spots and edges, and E23 for the butterfly bodies, flowerpot shading, and flower centers
  • The sentiment "Thinking of you" is computer-printed in pink ink with Lucida Handwriting folt.
