After completing a lot of layouts for the 
Spellbinders Paper Arts
to benefit
Crops of Luv,

I decided to change it back up
and finish a card tonight.

I was inspired to use
Joan's Sketch

and to use the current theme for the 
 #4 Challenge ~ Butterflies and Handmade Flowers

 I chose a black and purple theme that
coordinated with my butterfly dp.

The scallop "banners" were cute using a cut from Lacy Labels.

Unity Stamps that I used include:
(for the center of my hand made flower/inside the bottle cap)

sentiment from {Ippity} set BE BRAVE...BRANCH OUT
inked on vellum and then heat embossed

and some foliage/berries from the{Ippity} set Where You Should Be
inked and heat embossed

I created it in several layers
 (for the bottle cap center)
1. cutting a 3/4" circle from Lacy Labels
2. inking it with a soft lilac Studio G ink
3. stamping the flower and embossing it with black powder
4. adding the small black pearl
5. spraying a mist of Perfect Pearls 
6. gluing the circle to a bottle cap
7. adding a bit of alcohol ink (peridot)

8. adhering the bottle cap to the white cirlce (1")
9. using my MS Scroll Lace corner punch to create the petals 

around the perimeter of the white circle

10. adhering those layers to a purple circle (2")
then to another white circle (2 1/4")
11. The outside "petals" were created by twisting
of the last white circle.

I hope you enjoy my creation!
