Fat Page Butterfly Celebration

My friend’s birthday is coming up this week.  One of her favorite things is butterflies.  I made this card totally with her in mind!the DP and all images are from Create With TLC.  This is my second fat page I’ve ever made – the first one won’t post until May 11th.  I used the same basic layout for both.  I didn’t know what a fat page was until this upcoming challenge for one of my DT’s – apparently a fat page is a 4 x 4 card and the more you add to it the better.  I think this has just about as much on it as will fit!  I made the stick pins using some of the new beads I’ve purchased recently, I punched the one butterfly using some new Marianne Design dies I got from Joanna Sheen.  You can only see a small portion of the Whimsy Circle Memory box die also purchased from the Joanna Sheen store.  There is some fun ribbon down the side and across the bottom.  I added a lot of roses and some rose buds.   My final touch was the Stickles on the roses, the butterflies and the fairy wings.

Thanks for looking!
