   For my card I started off with Core' dination's Sand it, Tear it Emboss it, love it paper for my back ground. I used this beautiful vellum paper with the design and cut it out with my Creative Memories stencil. I used my Spellbinders oval and die cut the center out. Using the border stamp from the  JustRite "Beautiful Day Set". I stamp with VersaMark on the out side of the center cut out of the Vellum and embossed it with a light blue embossing powder.
Stamped the Irises with Memento black ink, I then colored it in with markers and die cut it a little larger then the vellum's center oval cut. I wanted to bring  the colors of the border out. I added my brad butterflies,bling and attached my bow.
For the inside I used the same background paper and cut out the same shape as the vellum on the front. Stamping the border and sentiment from the same stamp set JustRite "Beautiful Day Set" with the VersaMarK and embossed it with the light blue embossing power. Added my brad butterflies and bling.
