Mother Nature

Our challenge on Flourishes is to make something representing Mother Nature.  Stampin Sisters in Christ is to use something natural, (feathers)  Crafty Friends Challenge and Joan's Garden are the colors and embellishments.  I started this card with a Damask background stamp and the beautiful Butterfly and Blossoms set. I colored the image with copic markers, cut it out with labels 5,  edged it with distressed ink.  The Victorian flourish  from Cheery Lynn was used for the corner, I added a feather and a pearl stick pin to accent it.  Small exotic butterfly from Cheery Lynn and gold peel off borders finished the card.
