Bright Blooms & Butterflies

Good Friday morning everyone! I'm FINALLY getting to play with this month's Verve Diva Dare challenge to CASE the styles of Charmaine and Marisa which is basically to use bright, happy colors and butterflies and flowers.  After I adhered the lacy butterfly, I had a "DOH" moment and tried to change it out for a crimped butterfly, which is more Marisa's style, but there was no unsticking it, so it will have to stay. :-)  I colored the flower with Copics and popped it with foam dots.  Some machine stitching around the gingham panel and a little bling finished it off.  I'm using Jen Shultz' Deconstructed Sketch #99 for the layout and really love this one!

STAMPS: Surely Goodness (flower) and Doodled Occasions (sentiment) - both sets by Verve.
PAPER: Family Ties DP by Pebbles, Pacific Point, White, X-Press It Blending Card.
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black.
ACCESSORIES: Copics (B12, B14, B16, YG61, YG63, YG67), Open scallop Die-Namics by MFT, Fishtail Flags Die-Namics by MFT, Goodness Flowers die set by Verve, Adhesive rhinestones.
