Joan's Gardens Weekly Card Challenge #16

I'm back with a quick post to share the card I made for this week's card challenge on Joan's Gardens' blog.  The requirements this week were the following: use lime green and pink, use a lattice, use leaves to create a vine and use butterflies.

Here is my card:

I started with a card base of Kiwi Kiss and layered with patterned paper from the Basic Grey Sweet Luscious collection.  I punched the trellis from Whisper White with an EK Success punch. I stamped flowers and leaves from these Heartfelt Creations sets: HCPC 3305 Posy Patch Clusters, HCPC 3303 Posy Patch Flowers and HCPC 3314 Elegant Single Leaves with Memento Rich Cocoa directly onto solid DPs from the same Basic Grey Collection.  I cut out the flowers and leaves with the corresponding Heartfelt Creations dies (HCD 701 Posy Patch Dies and HCD 704 Perfect Petals Dies).  I shaped the flowers and leaves a little then layered them over the the trellis.  I popped up another flower on each base flower with Pop-Dots.  The butterflies were punched with a Martha Stewart Large Monarch Butterfly punch.  I added yellow gems to the flower centers and butterfly bodies to finish my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have great evening!
