Catching Butterflies

I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday!
Mine has been full of canning peaches and crafting :)
I'm very happy with how this card turned out!  I used the new Saturated Canary image Catching Butterflies.  She's so cute!! I used the inspirational photo at the Saturated Canary challenge blog to get my mojo going on this one, and followed the sketch at Graphicat Sketches.  The inspirational pic is of a super cute bike in front of a tree...but I didn't have any tree images so I went with a garden fence.  That image is Picket Fence from The Stamping Boutique.

Once the images were printed off, I used the fence as my background and cut it into a circle.  The I trimmed around miss butterfly and mounted her in front of the fence.  I think it makes a cute scene :)

Then I set to making my rose and rose buds.  I cut out all the layers with my cricut and then layered them together.  I added some clear stickles to the edges so it sparkled.  I added a floral ribbon behind the image and made a layered bow for added detail.  Then I made a couple stick pins by gluing on some butterfly gems to the end and then gluing them into my bow.
It's such a cute card!  While I like the pink and yellow together, I think I want to try it in a different color combo...probably blues since that's my favorite color :)
