I made this card for today's Flutter My Wednesday Challenge #56 hosted by Danni. This week was an inspiration challenge. The layout is using the Mojo 85 sketch. When I saw the inspiration photo, I immediately knew that I wanted to use SU's retired set Nature's Collage. I watercolored the image with SU Markers, ink refills and my aqua brush. Parts of the image are popped on dimensionals. The entire image was spritzed with Pearl Glimmermist and some parts were gold embossed (although the shimmer is not picked up in the picture like it is in real life). I had a good time experimenting with a new stich on my sewing machine in gold metallic thread. I think it makes the card more majestic.
Stamps: SU Nature Collage
Paper: Que Sera Lera by K&Co. Brenda Walton, Orchid Opulence and Bitter Chocolate Textured CS, Watercolor paper
Accessories: Butterfly charm, gold metallic thread, square nestabilities, pink grossgrain, purple Kaiser Kraft Pearl, EK Success punch, gold brads and prima flowers

I can't believe you don't have a ton of comments on this beauty Chris. OMG, I don't even know where to start except to say this is spectacular in all respects. The details are stunning and done in perfect balance. Love the stitching, coloring, ribbon and that b/fly charm just grabs you. Wow! TFS!
