Gathering Flowers

Come and Get It Challenges have a feminine theme with a "card for a woman".  You can see what the rest of the DT did, and  join in yourself here:

I chose our sponsor A Day for Daisies digi image called Gathering Flowers; what a lovely drawing and soooo feminine.  Get it here:

I coloured the image with copics, using the crosshatching technique for the sky to give it a bit of texture. 
I decided to make a free standing pop-up card, AKA a stand up box card, after getting one recently in a cardswap.    I had never made one before, but good instructions at Splitcoaststampers. 
Some patterned paper, a few die cuts and punches, a golden butterfly, and a bit of glitz make the card.  Note: I reinforced the vine diecut in the front with two layers so it would stand up nicely.
And what's amazing is ... it totally folds flat for posting!

Very pretty card Carol, and ever so feminine - it's ages since I made one of those cards - thanks for the reminder. Yours is gorgeous with that die cut standing up in the front.
