Paint watercolor paper with diluted Kaleidacolor dye ink refills and heat-set it.  Flick a few water droplets onto the dried paper.  Let it air-dry, then cut it with the 3-¼" Square Basics die.

Cut Montpellier Butterfly from watercolor paper.  Remove the bottom flower and leaflet to create a new look.  It's such a versatile die - great as designed, or using just the top three or bottom three flowers with the beautiful butterfly.  

Cut a coordinating turquoise vellum butterfly from the Butterfly Ensemble set.  Cut the center portion from gold mirror cardstock using the Morning Garden Butterflies die.  

Stamp the greeting - from the Watching the World Bloom stamp set - on a scrap of watercolored paper with VersaMagic Turquoise Gem.  Dry the ink, then trim it with the 2" x ¾" Rectangle Basics die.  

Attach everything to a top-folded smooth white 5-½" square card.  Add gold gem stickers.
