My card today features one of the stamps form the new God Quotes set. Here's a close-up view:
To make this card I started with the sentiment panel - stamping and die-cutting those layers. Next I created the card base and die-cut that background layer. After that I went to work on the Butterflies - and I decided to try something different... I stamped/die-cut the butterfly on Velum card stock, then colored them using Sakura Glaze pens. The cool thing is that the Glaze didn't dry on the velum right away - which allowed me to blend the colors a bit. After that I used a heat tool to set the ink. They were a bit deformed from the Glaze and heat, so I used a bone-folder to curve them back into shape.
Here's another photo:
Next I die-cut the Fancy Foliage out of ODBD papers, played with placement, and then started gluing/mounting everything. The butterflies were so vibrant that I felt they needed something else - like flowers :)!!! So after everything was together I added the flowers - some are punched and some are made using the little flower from the Ornamental Crosses set. Playing with flowers is one of my favorite things - and I felt the more flowers I added the more at home the butterflies seemed to be LOL!!
Speaking of butterflies - here's a super close-up shot. The velum makes them seem almost real - like they're about to take off!!

Last touches were the pearls and liquid pearl flower centers.
Here's one more shot, this time of the full card:
