The image I used is called Isabel’s Bouquet and you can fine her by Art  by Miran. The paper I used for my card is DCWV it is the Mariposa stack. I seen this card and I loved the layout but where I seen it they did not tell you how to make it. So I had to figure it out. So this is what I came up with. The card is 6 by 6, the black layer is 5 3/4 by 5 3/4. Need 9 squares and have to have about 1/4 inch between each square on all sides. So I made each square 1 11/16 and it worked. I even saved all my pattern pieces, just incase I want to make it again.

The spellbinder die cut is called adorning square. The butterfly's, I cut out of the mariposa stack they matched so nice.  The red, black and gold trim is from my stash. Added 3 metal dots on three of the corners. Close up of the flower, it is from Prisma, I added some Xmas red stickles to the edges and the center. On the yellow flowers added some pearl pen color black for the centers. These tiny flowers are a punch. The greenery is a punch called large fern.

I have been staying away from doing any black hair so I have been trying to work on black hair and I added some red. I sure have to practice a lot more on the hair but I will (maybe)

get it down. Here is the close up.
