Case of Selma's gorgeous card

I saw Selma's card on Joan's Garden blog this morning and realized I could case this with all my new die cuts from there and Sweet stamps. Both sites carry the Marianne and Cheery Lynn dies.  The cards on the blogs from the designers are always gorgeous and a treat for your eyes.  I used Marianne cut and emboss for the main panel, ribbon die cut for the left side, lattice for the center after I cut around the embossed images, Some prima flowers, MS butterfly punch, I hand colored the ribbon and it really does match.  The checked or plaid paper is from Crafty Secrets and I'm using this for their challenge on Split Coast also.

This is just lovely, Karen. The cut out and flower with the butterflies fluttering make me think of the garden.

Karen your card is beautiful. It makes it so easy to create a beautiful card with these new dies, doesn't it. I love how you put the plaid paper behind the die cut lattice. It makes me smile to see that you CASED my card. Great Job!
