Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember release day

It's here! The best time of the year for card makers or any kind of makers! It's STAMPtember!! Yay!! Ok yes I'm a little excited. This month is going to be really fun and there is a brand new release to kick it off! Click HERE to see the entire release.
The project I have made for this first day of STAMPtember is a fun Summer card using the Plentiful Poppies embossing folder, the Billow Butterfly die and the sentiment is from the CZ Sassy Friends stamp set
I made this card using an A2 size card base made from smooth white cardstock. It might be easier if I just break down the steps on how I made this card:
Inked up the inside of the Plentiful Poppies embossing folder that is flat with yellow ink and brayer.
Added a trimmed down piece of white cardstock to the embossing folder and ran through the machine.
Using copic markers I colored in all the RAISED areas that were left white, flowers and stems.
Using a ink blender tool I distress the sides of the colored panel with a darker yellow and added some ink splatters for some interest.
I adhered the inked and colored poppy panel to the card base.

I used the Billow Butterfly die to cut out of white cardstock the body and outline of the wings.
I cut the butterfly out a second time out of vellum
I stamped a small dot pattern on the butterfly wings using embossing ink and white embossing powder. 
I colored the back of the vellum wings with a copic marker in blue.
Using liquid glue and added all the butterfly elements together and adhered it to the card.

I stamped the Best Friends sentiment on vellum using clear embossing ink and heat set it with white embossing powder.
I then used the coordinating die to cut out the sentiment and adhere it to the card with foam strips.
Using the same stamp set I stamped the sub-sentiment with coordinating ink and cut it out using a sentiment strip die.

I hope this makes it bit easier to explain how to make a card in steps. Thank you so much for stopping by! I have listed and linked all the supplies below for your convenience. Happy STAMPtember!!
