To begin, I die cut a piece of lattice and used it as a stencil, sponging the design in gray ink on white cardstock. Borders from several stamp sets were added for the horizontal elements, also using gray ink. Four flower images were stamped in gray ink on white cardstock and fussy cut.
Next, a cluster of four flowers, three in gray ink and one in black ink were stamped on white cardstock. These were placed so that they would fit inside of the circle die. They were colored with alcohol markers, cut with the die and backed with another die cut in gray.
The panel of white cardstock was adhered to a piece of Tangerine Tango cardstock then onto a gray card base. The spotlight flowers were popped up with craft foam and adhered. The four plain flowers were adhered to the card - three were tucked under the spotlight to match up with the three partial flowers and one was placed on the lattice.
A circle of gray was cut using a 1/2" punch and popped up. A butterfly was punched and decorated with clear Wink of Stella then adhered to the popped up circle. The sentiment was added. The inside of the card was decorated with a white panel stamped with flowers.
