If Friends Were Flowers

This card is made with Gina K's "Take Flight" stamp set. The butterfly was black embossed and watercolored. The top portion of the background is a piece of Gina's Digi paper that I ran through a Cuttlebug embossing folder to give it some texture. The bottom piece is a piece of Baroque Burgundy card stock that I used a SU flourish and bleach along the bottom and sides. The verse is from SU and is black embossed.

Three different size oval Nestabilities were cut for the frame for the butterfly. The top one was sponged with burgundy ink. Three Prima flowers were added on the top and buttons added in the center of each.
