I recently bought a Poppy Stamps tulips die, and I thought it would work well here with this beautiful digi from The Paper Shelter called simply "Tulips." The lovely background paper is from the same set. I love the way TPS sells sets with digi backgrounds included as well as the colored and outline images. Here I used my Silhouette Design Studio software to do a trace of the sweet girl so I could print and cut her out a few times. Then I fussy cut various parts of the image (her hat, her skirt, her arm and the flower she's holding) so I could do some decoupage. I used foam tape to layer the various pieces.
The butterfly die cuts are from the Spellbinders "Jewel Flowers and Flourishes" set, and the die cut for the sentiment is also a Spellbinders die from the "Fleur de Elegance" set. I wrote the sentiment using my Silhouette program and then added it on top of the digital paper from this set. Then I printed it, die cut it and adhered it with foam tape. All the die cuts were cut out of the same digi paper from this set so they would match perfectly. I cut several sets of tulips and arranged them in layers on the bottom and the top right suing foam tape.
I thought these understated colors reminded me of a vintage look, so I decided to add some cream lace on the sides and a couple pearls to each butterfly in keeping with that style. I mounted everything onto a 5X7 inch Kraft card base using glue tape.
