STAMPlorations Challenge - Paint It Red

To give Shery some much needed time to adjust to being a new Mom to two little girls,
they've combined challenges into one monthly one for a few months.

I decided to use red in my card:

 and the inside:

I started by die cutting the frame in glitter paper 
using the two smallest dies from the
Next I stamped the rose from the
Blossom Overture stamp set and colored with Spectrum Noir markers.
The butterfly came from the
Trendy Butterflies 2 set. After heat embossing
it with red glitter embossing powder, I fussy cut both of the images.
I adhered the frame on an angle, then using my MISTI,
stamped the sentiment, also from the Blossom Overture set. 
The flower and butterfly were adhered with foam squares.
On the inside, I cut another rectangle die cut and stamped
a sentiment from the Trendy Feathers 2 set.

I love all the sparkle in the butterfly!
