Craft for the Craic Something Summery or with Flowers

Hello there!!! What glorious weather to have a 'Summery\flowery' themed challenge and thats exactly whats going on at Craft for the Craic this month.

I decided to keep it relatively simple this time - however there are lots of little details if you look long enough

Using a stamp that I got as a freebie last year with one of the magazines as my starting point, I coloured it with my water colour pens and shaded the back ground with pan pastels. I matched it up with a butterfly background paper and layered it over plain white card that I used a border punch on.
 For added detail - I punched the butterfly twice and layered it up. Then made a double bow made from 2 ribbons satin and organza and attached a gorgeous dragon fly charm. For the finishing touches I used 3 clear beads, punched tiny circles from dark pink paper and placed them under the beads to pull the colour scheme all together. 

That takes care of the summery feel  but what about the flowers - i hear you cry :) 

 and voila 

A surprise bouquet on the inside
