So, here's my creation.

I used Nesties to create the cute layered shapes and the Sentimental Flowers' SVG file to make that butterfly and flower have some dimension. The colors really worked well for this card.

See how that flower just 'pops' off of the card? I really love that I could do this without ME having to cut each piece by hand.

I used Copics to color everything. I tried a new thing by making the white flower tinged with pink. I like the effect.

The card recipe -

Stamps - Sentimental Flowers, Bold Butterflies
Paper - dp, pink, brown, caramel, white
Ink - black, white craft, glitter pen
Copics - Y000, Y02, Y06, C1, C3, C5, B00, R81, R83, Y15, 0
Accessories/Tools - Sentimental Flowers SVG file, Cricut, Nesties, SCAL, Tabs & Tags dies, ribbon, crystals, pop dots, sewing machine
