I Love Promarkers DT Card - Use Something New

It's the halfway point for our new, fortnightly challenge at I Love Promarkers, this time our theme is "Use Something New", and we're sponsored by The Paper Shelter, who kindly gave the DT some images to play with.  I, however, chose to use one of my own Paper Shelter digis, this beauty, called Rose, which I coloured, of course, with Promarkers, then highlighted with Star Dust Stickles.
 The gorgeous papers are my "something new", and are are First Edition pad called Paper Flowers; I've inked all the edges with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink and added pearl card and paper in Tea Rose and Amarillo from Anna Marie Designs for matting.  I used an Xcut floral corner punch on one layer to add a bit of interest.
For the floral cluster, I made some flower from patterned vellum, using a Sue Wilson Cornflower die set, with micro beads for the centre, and some smaller flowers from pattered paper using a Spellbinders Cherry Blossom die set, with Nuvo Crystal Drops in the middles.  The catkin branches were cut with another Sue Wilson die set, one which I'm finding very useful for arrangements such as these.  The flowers are topped with a glittery butterfly, also cut with a Sue Wilson die.
To further embellish, I added some layered ribbon, a matching button topped bow, and some matching gems in the corners.
