Every Flower

Hi there,

Today I'd like to share another card using both the rubber stamp Corner Garden Stamp Set 842, together with the Digi Bundle Corner Garden #842. I'm having so much fun with this digi bundle!
For my card today I ran off the the framed colored version of the image on to white cardstock. The joy of this digi set - there are black and white images to color yourself or you can take the pre-colored digis, where the work is already done for you! That's what I did here. 
I fussy cut the flowers and leaves and then thought to have them trailing over a trellis. I cut out Spellbinders Basic Lattice die from black cardstock and then daubed it with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse Mother of Pearl. This gave the trellis a wrought iron look. The vines were "placed" temporarily, which I decided my next step.
Sentiment was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Black Detail. This was then cut out with Spellbinders Standard Circles and some Peony Pink Embellishment Mousse was applied to the edge.
The trellis was backed with a piece of Super Adhesive Sheet, mounted to white cardstock and then pieces of mounting  tape were added to the vines to have them pop up.
Cloud Nine was applied to the sticky areas of the trellis. I edged white cardstock base with Nuvo Embellishment Mousses Lilac Lavender and Peony Pink.
Decided it needed more, so stuck down two doilies to the top left and bottom right corners of the edged card with 3/4" Tear-ific Tape behind them. The over lapping edges were trimmed, then I layered the card front  on top of the  base. The sticky areas of the doilies were also applied with Cloud NineSparkling Snow was applied to the flowers and leaves of the vines using the Nuvo Fine Tipped Glue Pen.
I then stamped the little butterflies and two little additional flowers from the Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them with Copics. They were then added to the gaps around the trellis with Mounting Tape. I added a little copper wire to the butterflies before sticking them down and that finished my card for today.
