Inspired Bloomin' Marvelous Card

Saw the cutest card on Pinterest and I just loved the way it was layered and the colors used.  Amy Storrie's card here was inspired by another Stampin' Up! demonstrator as well.  It's fun to see the different evolutions of cards that were inspired by others!

Here is what I came up with:

I made 2 because I plan on giving them away as a gift (but I can't say to whom!).  I used a similar color palette as Amy did, but didn't have the Sycamore Street designer series paper so I used Floral District which is very similar.

It looked to me like Amy used the smallest banner from Itty Bitty Banners Framelit Dies for her layer behind the butterflies.  I wanted to give it a little more weight, so I used the bigger banner and then cut it in half and trimmed to get it to fit how I liked.  Otherwise it was just a tad too long.

Amy's card used such great details, I had to replicate them, from the Rhinestones to the use of the Needlepoint Border TIEF from the Spring Catalog.
