Double Trouble Challenge #21 - Flowers & with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #302

Here is my DT Card for Double Trouble #21 "Make It Flowers" and partnering with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #302. The background paper was chosen for the floral design and cut the border with a pretty scallop and stitched edge. Instead of using flowers on the focal point I decided to use three butterflies, added some leaves and three beads. Sentiment was another die cut, layered and adhered to floral design paper.

Products Used:
Stampin' Up "Botanical Butterfly" Design Paper
CTMH Cardstock - Pansy, Sweet Leaf and 

White Daisy

   Lawn Fawn LF1559 "Love Ya"
   Poppy Stamps #1889 "Stitched Borders"
   Peachy Cheap "Flower Cutting Dies"
Embellishments - Black Beads & Purple Gems
Other - Foam Sheet & CTMH Thin Foam Tape

Also sent to the following Challenges
Heart2Heart:  Favorite Recipe "A Sketch Recipe" 
     For Spring "Recipe Flowers and Butterflies" 

Trouble Maker was quite insistent on the theme to "Make It FLOWERS!", and Twisted Sister was just as insistent on a bee for her optional twist, but we convinced her to allow "anything with Wings"

Use the beautiful sketches so that you are able to include your project at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #302 and #303.

Sketch Challenge #303 is a sneak peek which will be open the 2nd week of this Challenge, however, our DT cards are already in the post for additional inspiration. It's important that your project is entered according to the sketch and dates in Double Trouble's challeng blog. Anxious to see your interpretation and inspiration of the sketches.

Here is my DT Card for Double Trouble Challenge #21 "Make It Flowers" partnering and using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #303. The floral die was cut into the center of white card stock, embossed, layered on Lilac cardstock and then the floral cut added back into the embossed panel. The butterfly was a previously cricut cut which was in my stash and it went was adhered to the bottom corner of the floral. A sentiment was added and layered with the lilac cardstock.  

Also submitted to the following challenges:

I love the scalloped border. It works really well with the edges of the butterflies. The butterflies are beautiful "pops" of color on your card. Thanks for joining us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.
