Peace card

Hello, Today I am using a sentiment by Lisa Decosse. I got it by joining here Path of Positivity challenge. This month the challenge is peace. You can find the challenge here http://pathofpositivitychallenge.blogspot.com/2014/04/challenge-13-peace-april-7-may-4-2014.html.

Peace is something we all want. I find it in a walk enjoying the things God created. I love seeing the flowers and the butterflies fluttering around. The birds singing and the bees humming. It is all so soothing. I find peace in all the lovely things outside around me. I also find it soothing to drink a cup of hot tea. Holding the cup and breathing in the steam. Siting enjoying it outside in the back yard where the flower garden is.

I made the flowers by punching out daisies with a Martha Stewart and Recollections daisy punch. I then put them together 2 small and 2 medium daisies with a pop dot between the small and medium daisies. Once I shaped the flower petals. I added glitter to the edges. Once dry I added a gem to the centers. The gems are by Queen and Company.

The butterflies are made using a Stampin Up embosslits embossing die. I then inked the butterflies with purple ink and then folded them in the centers. Some are pop dotted on and some glue dotted on. 

The leaves are a thin soft plastic and are from a candle ring.

The die cut is made using a Spellbinders die called Labels Twenty Five.

The embossing was done using a Darice embossing folder called Dots background. 

The papers are by Recollections- purple, Georgia Pacific- white, Imagine That! Satin Fabrics digital paper- http://www.imaginethatdigistamp.com/index.html.

The card is 5" x 6 1/2".
