this is for todays F4A223 challenge which is called "use that stash" well, I have a stash of stickles and purple rhinestones, thus this card...This is also to honour Ann aka Dockside who is our new Queen... I chose this card to case... I kept the same colour scheme, but used different die cuts and image and also added a butterfly.... after stamping image on watercolour paper, I watercoloured them and cut them out... the flower image had 3 flowers, but I only wanted 2, so I cut one off... I then added stickles and rhinestones....
Thanks for taking a peek... Hope you like it....

Holy Moly! Your fussy cutting is amazing! I love those beautifully coloured flowers and the butterfly. If I don't miss my guess the flowers are dogwoods. The dogwood trees don't grow where I am but we have a little ground flower called Bunchberry (Cornus canadensis) that is related and looks similar though only one bloom per plant. They grow near the dock that I spend time aside of. :-) You have made a beautiful card and thank you kindly for helping me celebrate!

Hi Alice, what lovely flowers and beautiful butterfly with the right amount of sparkle! Nice die for your sentiment, and I really like how you placed it center stage with the cut out images in the corners!
