The Card Concept Challenge 71 - Fresh Flutters.

We have such a pretty image to inspire you in the current Card Concept Challenge. 'Fresh Flutters', even the challenge name is gorgeous. Can't wait to see the gallery :) Have fun!

I really just recreated the scene on my card. Well, sort of.......
I white embossed the background with a lacey pattern, then washed over it with dilute green watercolour. I thought that would be enough, but the design wasn't strong enough, so I added the flowers.
I used an American Crafts - Dear Lizzy - Neapolitan Collection stamp for my jar. I used watercolours to colour it, 
The butterflies are from an old, and much-loved, Hero Arts stamp set - Antique Flowers and Butterflies. I have used the smaller of the three butterflies in the set. 
The 'Thanks' is a woodgrain word from Kaisercraft ( I think)
I coloured a white doily with pink ink, then knocked the colour back a bit with white pigment ink.
A sprinkle of sequins and the card was done.

Here are the links to the design team's blogs:-
