Sorry about the slightly skewed picture! This card is made with one of my favourite cardstock colours "Melon Mambo" which is a delicious deep pink. What's not to like? The swirly flowers on the background use a stamp from the Creative Elements set, from which the sentiment frame also comes.

But the main thing I've used here is the brilliant Top Note Die, which fits the Big Shot and other die cutting machines. I cut one in black and then embossed a sheet of white with the square lattice embossing folder, from which I then cut another Top Note. If you've never seen one of these it has a row of "stitching" close to the edge, and if you cut along this line it makes a shape which nests inside a Top Note.

Onto the white I then stamped the swirly motif from the Everything Eleanor set in Pear Pizzazzz. The flowers are from the same set and I stamped them onto white before watercolouring and cutting them out - some of them are mounted on dimensional pads but you can't really tell that from the picture.

The final addition was a butterfly from the Creative Elements set, stamped in Rich Razzleberry then cut out and mounted as before. The result is a very pretty card, yet not as difficult or complicated to make as it might look! Please just ask if you have any questions.
