I happen to have the same idea as Lesley, as Ive also covered my card with the wording from the 7Gypsies 'Lille' collection paper ,my choice was the aptly titled 'Life is Good' - Ive rubbed blue distress ink along the edges of the red printed panel to give it a little bit of depth, Ive also rubbed charcoal around the wording, again, to give it a bit more depth and dimension.
The flowers are made using Tim Holtz Glassine Kraft paper - Ive just freehand cut out 4 decreasing in size circles, then scrunched them up - which gives them a great worn effect. You then simply layer them and Ive added small watch cogs to the flower centres.
The leaves and Butterflies have been cut from a paper which is from the 7Gypsies 'Conservatory Collection'.
