Double Inspiration

So much beautiful eye candy this week on the blogs I follow.  I wanted to CASE a card I saw on one site, Stamplorations,  but before I got going on it, I saw a sketch I wanted to use.  So I combined the two.
First my card:
I love all the daisies on Shery Russ' card, the one I wanted to CASE.
When I was going through my stamps for a daisy image, I decided to use one by ODBD.  That caused me to go to the ODBD blog to check out the challenge. That is when I decided to use the sketch and use the stamp as a BG stamp.  (This sound like the book "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie..." !)
Here is the ODBD sketch:
Here is the stamp I used
I stamped the lower right corner of my white cardstock then turned the stamped and stamped the lower left corner using Always Artichoke ink.  After stamping again on a separate piece, I cut out the butterfly with the matching die.  Coloring was done with Copics.
The moss colored piece is embossed with a SU embossing folder and the yellow piece with a Cuttlebug folder.
The verse in the center is cut with a Spellbinder Curved Rectangle.  It is one of the verses from the Word Art Wednesday blog.  They have a verse each week you can download for free.

So that is the evolution of my card. 
Hope you like it.
