Final Tribue to Spring and Summer

I live in Arizona, so to tell you the truth, Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter really don't look that different. Sure, you can kind of tell it's winter here, because we natives get cold when it gets down in the 60s and we all wear sweaters. But if you looked outside, my part of Arizona looks about the same all the time.
Even so, as a midwest girl, I know that this card is probably the final spring-y, summer-y looking card I'll be showing for a while. I miss the seasons so I try to pretend we have them, even though we actually don't.
So, goodbye spring and summer cards. Hello fall and winter!

This card was made for a VC Rocks Punch Card swap I was in this summer. I only used Melon Mambo. I stamped one butterfly and then a second without re-inking the stamps. I also did this on the little flowers. You have a guaranteed match because it's just a lighter version of your original color.

I cut out two of the lattice shapes from Certainly Celery and Pear Pizzazz. When I adhered them to the card, I put them a little off to give the appearance of a shade behind the first. This added more depth to the card. With just one layer, it looked pretty flat.

Only one wing of each butterfly is adhered so the other wing can stand out from the card.

I used the following Stampin' Up supplies to make this card:

Butterfly Prints and Itty Bitty Bits Clear Mount Stamp Sets
Melon Mambo Ink
Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery, and Pear Pizzazz Card Stock
Butterfly Extra Large Punch and Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack
Lattice Bigz Die
1/8" Certainly Celery Taffeta Ribbon
