Magnolia Challenge - Paper Only

Here's my card for the Magnolia-licious Challenge using only paper.  This was really one that I had to think about a lot.  I'm so used to using Stickles and Wild Orchid flowers it was tricky to think without them.  I know the flowers are paper, but ----

I used lots of punch outs and die cuts though!  Here's my card -

The designer papers are from Stampin' Up!  I fell in love with those papers the instant I saw them.  I hated to cover them up, but....  The flower in the lower corner was die cut with the Doohickey die sets Doily Flowers and a small flower and leaf set (forgot to write the name on the dies :()  The one in the upper right corner is the wax paper from the Doily Flowers.  Rather than toss it away, I made another flower from it.  Someone else had done that a while back and posted about it.  The fence is Doohickey die Lovely Fence.  I had to wait for weeks for it to come back in stock.

The green swirly vine and leaves is a Cheery Lynn Design Fanciful Flourish.  The die embosses the leaves as it is cutting - very nice.

The large butterfly in the corner is a Martha Stewart punch - not sure of the name.

Tilda is Hello Little Butterfly for the Butterfly Dreams Collection. 

I had started a different card for this challenge, but it wasn't coming together at all.  So this card was done today, so I just worked fast and didn't keep track of the Copics I used.

I thank you for stopping by and spending a minute or two.  I hope you enjoyed sharing my card.

Oh, this is so cute! Love the layout with all the cute embellies, but I think I like the green vine flourish the best. It puts it together.
