Paper Garden Spring Layout

This is one of two layouts that I will be teaching at a workshop in April. The hostess wants one Spring layout and one Easter layout. (I'm still workin' on the Easter LO.) I really wanted to add some photos to this layout, but it's not Spring yet and I don't have any photos to add. LOL! I used the new CTMH Paper Garden paper pack.
The flower at the bottom is a revised version of the card I posted earlier that I cased from Carolyn Hulin. I used a different stamp set for the stem and different colors to match this LO. The butterfly was inked up with CTMH Blush ink and then the edges rolled in Petal ink. Then I covered the entire butterfly with Bonding Memories Glue and covered it in Prisma Glitter. I bent the sides up a bit and glued the body to the layout so that the wings would lift up.
