Now glue the gold circle frame around cut out. Glue the Lattice Swirl Gateway die cut to front.

Cut another piece of decorative paper (from the same sheet) for the inside of card, glue. Glue the gold Rounded Window Frame circle to the inside of card so that it shows up in the window. Then glue the gold sentiment frame/mat to the center. Stamp sentiment with embossing ink then emboss with Gold embossing powder. Die cut with smallest circle, glue to the gold circle mat.

Stamp and die cut butterflies from the Spring Daffodil Stamp and Die sets using Deep Purple and Buttercup then sponge. Glue 2 together of each color and set aside. Stamp Hyacinth blossoms 3 times for each color on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using Magenta Hue, Deep Purple and Buttercup. Sponge with the same colors adding a bit of Majestic Violet on the Deep Purple Blossoms. Stamp 3 small Hyacinth flowers using green then sponge flower part with Deep Purple, Buttercup and Magenta Hue. Shade leaves with Copic YG63.

Shape the blossoms and glue them to the Hyacinth flowers using a glue gun (for quick set), to the corresponding colors (yellow to yellow, etc.) Glue the 3 flowers onto card so that all the stems overlap at the bottom left corner (trim stems as needed to fit). Fill centers of all blossoms with yellow Prills and glitter flowers.

Glitter card (try to avoid gold) and butterflies. Add rhinestone heads to the butterflies and glue the top left butterfly to the card but pop up the bottom right butterfly so that its head is up on flower. Tie a multi-loop lavender bow and glue it to the stems of the Hyacinth Flowers.
