Swallowtail and Daydream Medallions Card

The "a friend accepts us as we are yet helps us to be what we should" greeting seemed perfect for this card. I wanted a greeting or saying that symbolized the little butterfly becoming a big butterfly and this one was perfect for it. I chose to use the Daydream Medallions stamp set in Daffodil Delight and Coastal Cabana to set a light but bright tone to the card. I also used Soft Suede to stamp my butterflies before using a blender pen to add color to them. The Daffodil Delight bow on the front of the card was by pure accident. I slightly rocked my larger Daydream Medallion stamp by accident and didn't want to start over so I played around with a few options and found the bow to fit just right over my mistake. I think it adds a little bit of detail to the card as well.
For the inside of the card, I stamped a butterfly from the Swallowtail stamp set in Soft Suede in the middle of my card. I stamped it again on a separate piece of card stock to hand cut. I added some color with blender pens on both the large butterfly inside the card and the large hand cut butterfly. I tried to alternate where I added my color to add more dimension to the inside of the card. All of my butterflies (large and small) were added with dimensionals to give them dimension and to make them the focus of the card. 
I originally saw a card similar to this somewhere in blog land but have not been able to find it again. If it is similar to your original card, please let me know so I can give you the credit for the original design idea.
