This was a lot of work, but so much fun to make, although my first 2 attempts ended up in the trash.
The small butterflies are white shrink plastic, first smeared with pumpkin stazon, then stamped with black stazon. I punched a hole in them, but then decided not to use it. The word memories is clear embossed over the roses, but doesn't show up very well. There is plum magic mesh in the upper left corner and each intersection is dotted with purple stickles. There is also stickles on the face. Images are all stamped in stazon and colored with classic inks using an aqua painter.

Melody this is what I hoped someone could create from the sample we had and you did it beautifully. I can't wait to read what Sherry has to say about your card. This is gorgeous, will you make us each one ? I only need a card front because I would frame mine.
HOLY COW!!!! If this isn't the coolest artistic interpretation! You are the absolute *Queen of the Butterflies* So many stupendous elements in this and waaaaaay more work than I could handle! I think you should turn this into a poster, it would sell like hotcakes!!
