For my card today, I'm combining the beautiful Butterfly Dreams Collection with an all-time favorite of mine, the Sweet Peony stamps and dies. The background was created with designer paper from the Blushing Bride Paper Collection (aqua) and the Classic Petunia Paper Collection (magenta paper), and two strips were cut out of the aqua piece with the Butterfly Dreams Border Die, then the corresponding stamps were sponged and added on top. I trimmed it out with the lovely lacy Fleur Border Basics Die.
Just between you and me, I looked at the card when it was complete and realized that I'd put the butterfly background panel on upside down, the words on the aqua designer paper were upside down, so I created two new corners with the words right side up. I apparently needed another double espresso!
My floral spray was created with the Large and Small Sweet Peony stamps and dies and pretty gold stamens from the Assorted Bead Stamens - Medium. If you'd like details on sculpting peonies, you can find a video here. The tiny yellow flowers were created with the smallest flower in the Classic Rose stamp and die sets and yellow stamens from the Pasted Bead Stamens - Medium were added. Lots of Crystal Clear glitter was added to the flowers.
The string of butterflies from the Butterfly Dreams Border set was sponged, cut out, and the butterflies cut apart to place among the spray of flowers. Stickles glitter glue was added to the butterflies.
