Stampin' B's - Flower Soft

Faith/Markie's Mom is hostess this week for the Stampin' B's Design Team and asked that we make a card using Flower Soft and liquid applique or glitter. I am not sure you can even see my Flower Soft. It is the yellow (which doesn't show) and reddish color in the small flowers. I used Stickles for the glitter-butterfly and fairy wings.
We hope you'll join us this week. If so, use the inlinkz tool to link your card.

I am using a stamp by Studio 18 (I think from the $ bin at Michael's). I embossed all my layers and the doily with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. Colored with Copics, added the Flower Soft, made a stick pin, used a gingham ribbon, punched and stickled a butterfly, and added pearls. I'm using the Martha Stewart Laurel Leaf punch.

I am entering my cards into a few challenges:

I LOVE doilies and have some, but only used them, I think, only used them on 2 cards. Your StampinB flower soft card turned out great. Don't you love using copics? I'm still learning. I really goofed up and used flower soft all over my card. It clumped up too much, but I was tired of messing with it. Joanne used a glitter pen and Vicky used sparkly brads. Now, why couldn't I come up with something like that rather than the flower soft war that was raging on here? Your flowers look lovely and I like the light sprinkle of flower soft (unlike me) and your pin and ribbon are a fantastic touch. Way 2 go my Benzalina!
