Challenge Card with New Italian Die

I used the NEW Italian Flourish Doily for the focal point of this card.  Isn't it gorgeous!!!  It was cut out of the back of some designer paper and then colored with Tim Holtz Marigold Distressed Ink and Colorbox Coral.

The flower is made from the  the Sakuras Punch  and the large Skye Flake Punches and is one that I had left from the workshop this past weekend.  Martha Stewart's Butterfly border punch highlights and balances the side.  The butterflies are part of the designer paper and I cut them from another sheet and added them to the top of the designer paper for dimension.  This paper is a new paper pad that I will be featuring this weekend called Gabrielle by Bo Bunny.   I love JustRite's new Cling Stamps and this sentiment is from the Inspire Me set.

Joan,

Oh my gosh, this card is so colorful, springy and beautiful. It made me feel like spring might really be here soon, along with some sunshine.

Thanks for sharing.
