Here is what I came up with. The patterned panel was made by me using Hero Arts "Large Flower Background" stamp. I stamped it on a piece of water color paper using VersaMark and then heat embossed it using gold embossing powder Then I colored the flowers and leaves using Copics. I used a piece of white heavy weight cardstock and I die cut each side using one of my Spellbinders dies and then cut another piece in green to layer beneath it. I gold embossed a gold strip of cardstock to adhere to each side of the patterned panel. I used "ripe persimmon" and "crushed olive" Distress Inks to color the butterfly. I designed the "Thank You & mat" and added the "Dragonfly" which I gold embossed . The finishing touch is the "faux" lady bug!
Here is a close-up photo.
