Spring Card

Finally Spring is coming and the snow is melting! (I probably just jinxed it now) Anyway I made this card to put in an Easter gift. I thought it was pretty spring like.
1. used masking tape to make a boarder around the card
2. stamp/ emboss with clear powder a good grain stamp
3. use distress ink over the embossing it will leave a resisted effect
4. peel off tape
5. cover butterfly shape chip board with paper
6. layer the smaller butterfly on top of the bigger
7. Use glossy accents to make it shiny
8. cut a bunch of circles from pattern paper
9. layer them and attach with brad
10. scrunch up the paper circles to make it more dimensional
11. Attach flower and butterfly to card
12.use marker to add detail
