A Card Made from Leftovers

Hello. Ok, not all the pieces of this card are leftovers.

The Royal Blue (SU Brilliant Blue) piece is leftover from another card. Keep scrolling down, and clicking on older posts at the bottom to find it. The little butterflies are left over from another project (Martha Stewart Trio Butterfly Punch). The Brilliant Blue and the Center pieces are popped up with foam dimensionals. The white piece below was run through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder, and the base of the card and the center piece are SU Bashful Blue card stock. It is hard to tell in the photo, but the stamped image is heat embossed with SU Clear embossing powder. I first stamped the images onto my Versamark pad, then stamped the images onto the SU Classic Ink colors that I wanted, then stamped the images onto the card stock so that I could add some clear embossing powder and heat emboss. Heat embossing is kind of an obsession with me these days. The bow was simply adhered in the middle with a foam dimensional, and snail adhesive on the back of the white section. Oh, there is Stickles covering the butterflies too even though you probably can't see it in the photo. I will add a close up and see if that helps.
