Card for #20 Challenge

I am in the process of organizing my dies.  As I was doing so,
I found a Spellbinder Gold Round One Die that I had not ever opened.
Not sure how to use it, I went to YouTube and searched for a video.  The video showed using the  Gold Round One and a Standard Round die together.  Notice the
embossing around the cut out.  I loved how this turned out.
 The Fancy Lattice die was die cut and placed  on the inside of the card for interest.  Another favorite die of mine.
Next after cutting out my circle I wanted something different on the side,  I played with several things, but then remembered I had this Shasta Flower stencil from Dream Weaver.   Using White Embossing Paste I stenciled the flower and let it dry, inked it with Tim Holtz Spun Sugar and Moss Green.
Jerri Jimenez of a Touch of Grace did several tutorials on making flowers.  So, I tried her technique and even though I certainly haven't mastered it yet, I was pleased with the way they turned out.
I added this gorgeous butterfly, Magnolia leaves, Magnolia swirl dies and the Exquisite Circle which had been stamped with Best Wishes.

Beautiful card and beautiful gardens. I hope the storm was not too hard on them.
I wonder if the date with the link is in error - it says there are 27 days left.
