Materials Used:

                       Bitty Blossoms (large rose) (From Joan's Gardens)
                       Floral Ovals (From Joan's Gardens)

Cuddlebug: Kassie's Brocade embossing folder
Copic Marker: Black
Lace from my sewing stash

I embossed the front of the card with the Cuddlebug Kassie's Brocade folder.  Then I glued  the largest Fleur De Lis Square in the center with the two smaller squares on either side.  I cut a piece of black cardstock and glued it inside the front cover and attached the scrap of lace to it.  The large flower was made using the largest die from the Bitty Blossoms set and the smaller one was made by cutting out small hearts and forming them into the rose.  I stamped the lady at the desk with ink onto a white oval from the Floral Oval die, but it didn't turn out like I wanted it, so I used a black copic marker to go over it.  I placed the pine branches and flowers at the left side on top of the Fanciful Flourish.  I cut the butterfly out of a peice of Kassie's Brocade embossed card stock, attached feelers and pearls to it, and placed it at the top of the small rose.  I placed the pearls on the squares and oval last.
