Love is Like a Butterfly.....

I hope everyone had a good weekend.  I know I did.  Today I have a card that is made mostly with die cuts and punches.  The cardstock is SU and the designer paper is Jillibean and SU.  The flower is made with SU punches Fancy Flower and 5-Petal Flower.  The button brad is from The Paper Studio. The leaves are made with a Sizzix die cut Flourish, Flora w/Leaves.  The paper for the leaves is from my scrap box.  The corners are Decorative Corner #3 die cut by Sizzix.  The Sentiment is from SU Butterfly Prints set and it is stamped in SU Real Red.  It is stamped on a die cut called Label, Ornate #3 by Sizzix.  I used Martha Stewart's Deep Edge Blossom Trim punch to punch the center strip.  The butterfly is a die cut from Tim Holtz Alterations.  I cut out the butterfly then I used the Real Red ink and stamped on part of it with a stamp from SU's Butterfly Prints.  I then used a lot of gemstones from my stash to give it some sparkle.  Oh and last but not least the background paper is embossed with an embossing folder by Sizzix for SU called Square Lattice.

I plan to enter this card in these challenges:
