Here is a thank you card I created using Tilda Picking Lilacs from Magnolia Stamps.

 I started with a dove flower card base. I added a piece of white card stock that I embossed using a cuttlebug dots embossing folder.  I cut a piece of light orchid ribbon and added it to the center of the embossed card stock.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma color pencils.  I cut the image out in an oval, backed it in wisteria card stock and then cut it out using scallop scissors.  I created a bow using the same light orchid ribbon and added it to the upper corner of the image.  To the opposite bottom corner I added 3 purple paper daisies and some leaves I punched out of sage green cardstock.  I added purple pearls to the center of each flower.  I stamped the thanks sentiment directly onto the card.  Then I punched 2 monarch butterflies, one out of sage green and the other out of dove flower.  To the dove flower butterfly I added 3 light blue pearls and to the sage green I added 3 light green pearls.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
