Lovely roses with butterflies digital image 4 ways for DT project at PPCC no 432

The featured floral box digital image is part of a Floral Set 1 from Bugaboo which was one of the options presented to the design team for PPCC's #432 challenge from this week's prize sponsor. They have the cutest animals, sassy Stella, and the loveliest nature among their images inventory. Here's Card #1 I created using one of the images in Floral Set 1 (printed at 3.5" x 5" with base 5" x 7")=

#1= imagine

PPCC's blog ID badge & Bugaboo's prize sponsor ID badge:


Layout for this card was inspired by the new card sketch challenge at Paper Craft Crew #338=

I receive PCC updates through emailed newsletter. However I will provide a website link=

I turned the sketch design to the right 90 degrees. I stenciled flourishes for 2 of the 4 cards. A 3rd got cording loops. A 4th got washi tape pieces. Due to enlarging the size and layers of the focal/center, I did not do a ribbon type strip that is shown in gray on the sketch. I have used gem dots. The star has been replaced with butterfly(-ies). And 3 of the 4 have sentiments in same location as the sketch. Only 1 has it on the opposite side and that was due to placing 2 butterflies on the left side of the focal.

Here are #2, #3, and #4=

#2= discovery, imagine

#3= good friends and great adventures

#4= thoughts, dreams

Another challenge link is to Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog and FB community

all the papers come from my May kit or scraps bag that has accumulated from previous months' kits

embellishments have been added in, including stencils used for making the 2 different types of flourishes [Pebbles Stencils set of 10 of accents purchased about 10 years ago from Paper] and for the sentiment in #4 [Pen + Gear planner kit recent purchase at Wal-Mart]

Hope you've enjoyed this ambitious under-taking for this design team project. I've got several family members who have birthdays in June and another few who've been sick or need cheering up. So my assortment needed to be re-stocked.
