I started with Aster Garden Digi893 set. I cut the butterfly from one flower and pasted it to another. I also changed the orientation and size of the pre-colored images to make them look a bit different. They are all printed and fussy cut. Following two photos will show how easy is to make it look that you are really good with fussy cutting. The first photo will show all the ugly white edges. The second photo is made after I 'colored' sides of the images with Tuxedo Black Memento Dual Marker.

The butterfly was covered with Versamark ink and I heat embossed it with Sparkle Embossing Powder. I adhered some Daisy Microfine Glitter to the flower petals with Medium tip Nuvo Glue Pen. Flower centers are covered with Dimensional Glue and Amber Wheat Flocking. 

The sentiment is from Aster Garden 893 Rubber Stamp Set. It is stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with new Timber Embossing Powder. I added some yellow to the word 'everything' with marker. I traced the oval with Spellbinders die (Floral Ovals) around the sentiment and cut it out with scissors. I took the Sakura Glue Pen and drew the line all around the edge of an oval and covered it with Daisy Microfine Glitter. I used the same Spellbinders die and die-cut a decorative oval to mat the sentiment. 

I adhered a piece of 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to the white cardstock and cut the protective liner with kraft knife into five strips. I removed the liner from two narrow strips and covered the tape with Hickory Microfine Glitter. I removed all rest of the liners and covered the tape with Margarita Microfine Glitter. I adhered two decorative edges, made with Creative Expressions Trellis Edger die, to the back of the glitter layer.

On the background, I used a digital paper from Floral Surprise Papers collection. It's so pretty and works really well with Aster Garden Stamp Set. Edges of the matting layer are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. After adhering the background to the center, I covered rest of the tape with Hickory Microfine Glitter. My card needed a bit more, so I added few drops of Nuvo Glitter Drops Dazzling Blue to finish it off.
