Miracles of Springtime - Lily Pad Cards Inspiration Challenge

Today is a Lily Pad Card Inspiration challenge.I was inspired by Sherri's card here.

The wonderful sponsor for this challenge is Simon Says Stamps!

I loved the idea of the butterflies starting out as being embossed and turning into three dimensional objects and of course she had me with the glimmer mist background! :)

Here is my CASE of Sherri's beautiful card.

Memory Box has just released some beautiful new dies and I used them to create the flowers (Catalina Border) and dimensional butterflies (Butterfly Delights).  The stamps are Memory Box (Miracles of Springtime - B1766, First Flight - F1328).

1.Spray white cardstock with blue glimmer mist. 
2. Stamp butterflies using versamark and clear emboss with white embossing powder. (Make sure the glimmer mist background is completely dry. :) 
3. Stamp sentiment using versamark and heat emboss with white embossing powder. 
4. Die cut border and butterflies from white cardstock.
5. Cut background panel and front panel to size and add die cut pieces of flowers to create flower garden. :) 

All the details of the challenge are at the Lily Pad Cards Blog.
