Cheery Lynn Design Challenge #72 Think Spring

The challenge over at Cheery Lynn Designs this week it to Think Spring . Here's a card I created for this challenge using Graphic45 Once Upon a Springtime Collection papers.I really like how this card came together since there is no stamping on it . I cut the flowers out of the pattern paper as well as the butterfly and layered everything for dimension. The edge of the card was distressed and then inked with vintage photo. I also inked around the edge of the doily to give it some depth.
Supplies used :
Cheery Lynn dies --French Pastry Doily , Exotic Butterfly , Fanciful Flourish
MS ribbon Border Punch, Spellbinders Aster Die,

Paper: Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime Collection, Bazille green dot to dot , vanilla
Ink: Vintage photo Distress ink

I' m entering this in the following challenges
