Treehouse Stamps Challenge- Flowers and Butterflies

Happy Thursday everyone!
It's time for another challenge at Treehouse Stamps.
This weeks featured Design Team member is Kelly and you can see her wonderful creations at Kelly's Stampin Habit. She's a little "creatively challenged" at the moment as her right arm is in a cast but she still made a wonderful card for the challenge this week!
This weeks challenge was to included both Flowers and a Butterfly (or two) on your project and it was nice to get in the mood for the upcoming Spring season.

I found a few other challenges that helped me create this card.

Mojo Monday gave me the sketch
Frosted Designs want to see Chipboard
Cute Card Thursday had a "Blooming Gorgeous" theme
Die Cuts R Us wanted to see Ribbon
Saturday Spotlight had a Sunshine theme
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle had a Spring theme
Corrosive wanted Fancy Folds
Cupcake Crafts wanted a Matching Set
Practical Scrappers wanted Patterned Paper
Flutterby Wednesdays had an Open theme as long as it has an Angel, Fairy or Butterfly on it
Quixotic had a challenge of Flutterby

I made an easel card with a matching bookmark using the Tulips from the Spring Blessings digital stamp set
I printed two of the images in a large form for the card and 3 smaller ones for the bookmark. I colored the images and cut out one of the large ones and popped it up on to the one on the card.
The Copic colors I used are G82, G94, Y11, Y15, Y21, Y35, Y38 and YR65. I outlined the images with W1.
The green dp is Love Elsie and the yellow polka dots is K&Co.
The sentiment is K&Co too.
The chipboard butterflies are American Crafts.
The border punch is Martha Stewart.

I used dewdrops on the top of the message mat to make the card "stopper".

Here you can see the depth on the flowers.

I put the bookmark in a bookmark cover and added a ribbon to the top.

So dust off your Spring supplies, find a blue sky for inspiration and create a design for us all to see!
