Spring Bling Blues

I have combined several challenges this week into one card. The SCS colour challenge was to use pale blue, mid green and yellow; Just Us Girls to use a negative die; Country View Crafts to make a Spring card and Stamp TV - Spring and Bling.
For this card I used ivory card stock which I stamped with my main image then using Weathered Wood distress ink I made a background with the stamped off image. I used an embossing folder -In Stitches - to create  more dimension. The negative die technique enabled me to remove part of the card to the left of the image. I used an edgelit with blue card to make a border. The image is coloured with Copic Inks and the butterflies stamped with Broken China distress ink.
I coloured my image again on scratch card -  fussy cut and attached with glue dots.  Happy Birthday was stamped and embossed; blue and yellow pearls and a blue ribbon attached. The yellow, blue and ivory mats were attached to the card using dimensionals.
