Just Rite Friday Challenge #093--Suddenly Spring

Just wanted to share with you a card I made last evening for a few challenges that are posted for this week on several blogs.
I stamped the background with Dusty Concord DI and embossed with clear EP ,then sponged with Antique Linen DI. This was layered on lavender and yellow C/S . The butterfly image is from Just Rite Botanical Butterflies and was colored with Gamsol and coloring pencils. The edge was sponged with Dusty Concord DI. I used the Viva pearl pen to add pearls around the perimeter. The flower I made by cutting a spiral circle and then rolling it around a skewer.The bow was made with my bow maker.

Supplies :
Paper: SU Barely Banana, Lavender Lace, Very Vanilla.
Stamps: Just Rite Botanical Butterflies ,MSE sentiment, Hero Arts Dandelion Frame
Ink: Memento Tuxedo black.
Accessories: Cheery Lynn Italian Doily,Spellbinders Fancy Tags 2, Scalloped circles Lg.,MS butterfly punch, EK Success Flower Border punch ,Hugs Snug seam binding, Pearls from my stash.
