Tsunami Rose DT New Beginings

Hi everyone I hope that you are all well and happy. Welcome to my little bit of blogland.
Today I would like to share with you an Easel card that I have created using the stunning New Beginings Printable Journal Kit designed by Daisy Collins Owner / designer of Tsunami Rose Designs. 
Here it is and I hope that you like it. 

Here's how I did it.
I took an easel card blank from Kanban and covered parts of it with paper from the stunning New Beginings Printable Journal kit and left it to dry, around the edges i have added a little glitz glitter glue for a little bit of bling. 
Using some more of the paper from this stunning kit I punched out some flower shapes and just simply shaped them to a 3d effect and added a button in the centre of them. I have also cut out and created a little tag envelope and added it to the card along with the " Fly Above" sentiment.  To finish off I have embelished with a double tied pink organza ribbon bow with a butterfly added to the centre of it. some pretty creamy white lace  a few skeleton leaves behind the flowers and a cute angelic hatpin.
