Thinking of You

Hello everyone! I have been thinking of all of you, my wonderful followers and how much I appreciate all of the wonderful comments and thought you share with me! It is really a blessing.  So just a note that you don't go un-noticed this is for you!
My husband at a garage sale last weekend found these incredible pre-made card bases from My Mind's Eye and surprised me with them!  So I plucked one out of the package and used it as my base.  I love My Mind's Eye papers and this is the first time I've had any of their product.  So, not to detract too much from this lovely pattern I chose to layer some wonderful flower dies (that included these lovely leaves) that I cut out by hand from Fred She Said Designs.  I did ink the edges just a bit with some blue Windflower ink and then added a pearl to the centers.  Then I stamped the sentiment from Heidi Grace with green Windflower, inked the edges with both green and blue and matted it to some green cardstock from my stash.  Then it still looked empty so I added some butterflies that I punched out of the remaining flowers from the sheet with my EK Success punch.  After adding the rhinestones to the butterflies I felt it was complete! The card base has a nice shine to it and you can see that in the pic under the sentiment.  I thought it gave the flowers and butterflies a bit of an airy feeeling!
Here are a couple more shots I took.
I will be sharing this card with:
Sentimental Sundays:  Whimsical + a sentiment
Stampin' Sisters in Christ: Build up your card -I chose to layer my flowers
