This is one of the Basic Grey papers that I can't understand why I have two pads - there are others I could have 20 and have no trouble using them :D.
So I started with the papers and then chose a stamp and my colours from there. I thought Embrace Life echoed the pattern in the paper quite well. After cutting my largest oval I stamped the flower several times while the card was still in the die, masking as necessary. I coloured them with H2Os, and popped the centre one up - hard to see in the photo. Stickles on the stamens on the base layer, Liquid Pearls on the popped up one. It's layered onto a scalloped oval cut from Basic Grey solid card and pierced. Bottom strip punched with scallop border punch and pierced, then popped up on thin foam tape.
I punched a butterfly from another scrap of paper, embossed with Textile, sponged with Fired Brick and added Stickles. Dew Drops to finish off.
