Thinking of You...DCWV Stack-a-holic Challenge for June 2016

I used papers from DCWV's Garden Charm stack to create this Thinking of You card for the June Stack-a-holic Challenge.  I used a Memory Box die to cut out the tiny butterflies from 4 different papers from the Garden Charm stack.  I added some ruby Stickles to the fussy-cut flowers on the left and added yellow rhinestone centers.  Using other papers from the stack, I cut out the sentiment and matted it with the dotted red paper.  I trimmed the edges of the sentiment panel with lace and mounted the panel on the card with pop-dots.  Some rhinestone flourishes complete the design.

This is the sketch that the challenge is based on:
