Hero arts challenge card, Summer theme

Hi, I made a card for the Hero Arts June challenge, I chose the summer theme:-) I love using birds and butterflies with my flower stamps, so I paired two great stamps by Hero arts and added a little green butterfly I punched out with my Martha Stewart punch.

First I stamped the Lace stamp on my base card stock and the circle stamp on a scratch piece. I coloured the flowers in with Copics and the little rim in silver to give it a metal feel.I them cut the circle out with a craft knife.. (which took forever!) I then stamped the circle again and cut out more flowers to pop up with dimensional adhesive and make my image a bit more fuller with flowers.

I cut out a circle in the middle of the lace stamp and adhered the flower circle on top framing it. I added some acetate behind so that the window looks nice and I can then add my butterfly on top to make it look like its floating:-)

I stamped the butterfly with a musical notes stamp by prima and coloured the butterfly in a light green Copic marker. I also added two gems to make it shine.

Lastly I added my new favourite sentiment stamp which is by Hero arts and Voila!

Here's the close-ups,
