Feminine Flower

I started this card with the sketch and the colors. I had one piece of patterned paper from CTMH that these colors brought to mind and it had the one big flower that is the very back of my flower. Lots of scrunchy paper flowers have been being used lately and I was featured at The Color Dare for a card I made with just tissue paper. I cut out the circles for the upper layers of my flower then took my scissors and cut around the circle to kind of ruffle them, didn't want distinct scallops, put the whole thing together with a brad from the Stampin Up Pretties Kit and sponged the tips of the whole thing with Stampin Up Rich Razzleberry. I'm really liking the new little Stampin Up Embosslits Beautiful Wings folder, the butterflies that come out of there are perfect for cards. I twisted some purple wire I had in my stash around the 3 bodies on the green butterfly, curled the tips, and added the crystals, tipped the wings with Rich Razzleberry.
I'm kind of bragging here, but when I got through putting this card together I sat back and said-"Wow, how pretty!" Then realized there is no stamping on it. It's amazing what you can make with beautiful papers, inks, punches, some instructions from the clever lady who came up with these flowers, and a bunch of other little do dads that we true crafters and artists just can't seem to keep from collecting.
I hope you gals at these 5 Challenges let my card fly with no stamping.
