Floral Hugs - Karen McKibbin

Hello everyone, I've got a beautiful floral card to share today and all the credit goes to the gorgeous Rainbow Twirl paper from Paper Rose Studio. Isn't that paper beautiful?  I made this into a 5 1/2" square card because I wanted to get as much of that paper on as possible. :)
To start this card, I cut a 5 1/2" square from the Rainbow Twirl paper, and die cut the top using the Hearts Borders die.  I glued this to my white card base, and then applied the Distress Grit Paste over the large pink flower.  This paste dries translucent but has a bit of a sparkle to it which I wanted to highlight that one big flower. It also has a gritty texture to it as its name suggests.  I set this aside to dry and went on to die cutting 3 of the 'hugs' sentiment and one of the butterfly.  
I glued the butterfly to a scrap of the same Rainbow Twirl paper, and then carefully cut around the die cut wings. I stacked and glued together the three layers of the hugs sentiment.  Once the grit paste had dried, I attached the sentiment and added the butterfly.  Finally, I added the crystal drops around the centre of the pink flower and randomly over the rest of the card.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope I've given you a little inspiration today!
