When my boys were little, we always used to pick these and blow the seeds high into the sky and make wishes, I still can't resist doing it now and they're all grown up but it still makes me smile. Anyway onto my card.
I started with the backing paper I found amongst my snippets but I'd already used part of it for another card using the MB honeycomb die which had left a big hole on the right so I was limited on its use. After a little thought, I die cut another honeycomb from contrasting card and inserted it back into the negative space.
I stamped the image once and then again with second generation ink for a more muted dandelion. Now the fun part, not! I die cut the butterfly, layered it onto cardstock and fussy cut around it and then added clear embossing powder for a bit of shine. I die cut the butterfly once more using a snippet from a left over page of an old paperback book from a past project - now this is really not for the faint hearted. The paper is so flimsy and once you apply pva glue, it really is fiddly and at risk of tearing so easily, cue several walk aways!
Those of you eagle eyed crafters will spot another one of my whoops moments. The writing should be continuous but I put the top pieces in back to front and just all wrong, needless to say I was annoyed at myself but thought I'd just roll with it and see how it turned out. To finish I added some ivy die cuts from the scraps left of the cardstock and a few gems.
