Lilie's and Glittered Butterfly


Today I was inspired by two things.  There are lilies in practically every store right now.  The lilies for Easter are white, but I used Susan's Garden Notes Lily dies to create yellow lilies for this card.   I watched Els van de Burgt Studio Silk Microfine Glitter and Butterfly 1 YouTube video on how to use her die cut butterfly and Silk Microfine Glitter and and was anxious to complete this technique - what gorgeous butterflies!!!  I created one butterfly just like Els shows on her video (same dies and same colors of glitter), then several others in different colors.  The one on this card is the Small Butterfly and fits well with the Garden Notes Lilies.  

After creating the Lilies and the Butterfly, I used a piece of the Els van de Burgt Studio Through The Lens Stone Design Paper to cover a 6x6 inch card front.  Three different sizes of the Stitched Ovals were die cut and sponged around the edges, using Tea Dye Distress Ink.  I know it is hard to see, but first the largest oval was attached to the upper left side of the card.  The next size oval was lowered and attached a little off the right side of the larger oval.  The smallest oval was used to stamp Susan's Seeds of Thought "No Winter Lasts Forever", and attached with dimensional tape, and placed horizontal.  

Susan's CountryScapes Grass Cloud die was used to die cut two strips of grass, which were off set together for the bottom border. As I usually do, I used the Elizabeth Craft Fine Pointed Scissors to cut between each blade of grass to make each blade thinner.  The CountryScapes Nantucket Arbor & Picket Fence die was used to die cut one fence.  One of the Corner 1 dies was used to die cut one corner for the upper right side.

Lovely card, Selma. I really like the sentiment on this one. It seems like Spring will never come in my neck of the woods - we got 4" of snow today!

Good morning Selma,
Oh how beautiful are your lillies and oh so real looking with the pollen on the stamens, the shape of the petals and colouring of them, the leaves with their veins. You manage to get each flower(because i have went back through every entry on your blog)looking so real and perfect or rather imperfect just like the real ones. I love and look forward to your new postings so thank you Selma for yet another fantastic scene.
