Always Believe (Pop Up & Twist Butterfly Card)

Hey everybody,
Hope you all are having a super week.  I have a lot to tell you about this card, but I'll try to keep it as short as I can, although that never seems to work to good for me.

First and foremost, this is my first card as a DT member for Daydream Designs.  As a new member I got to pick some stamps, and for this card I chose a beautiful scripture (Matthew 28:20) from the "Dream Team Scripture Set 3" which you can find here.

The smaller flowers are from Daisy Doodle (called Floral Accents), and the larger flowers are from my past store Digi Doodle Shop.  A butterfly was required to do this pop up card (see tutorial here), but I couldn't find one that I felt would work.  Consequently, I just drew a simple design, and (of course) I used my ProMarkers. 

Not only did I love this tutorial for the pop up and twist effect, but the colors were right up my alley.  I don't know what it is about blues and browns that I love so much, other than the fact that I must've been born in blue jeans and there was coffee in my bottle instead of milk..hmm go figure.

The papers are both from Colorbok, and the Believe on the front of the card was created in Paint shop Pro.  The ribbon was originally white, and I just colored it to match my card.

Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day, and stopping by.
