V for Vase and Vanilla

The current Butterfly Challenge is 'V for Vases and/or Vanilla'.  I had almost given up finding a vase when I came across this cute vase of snowdrops, saved from a card I received earlier in the year.  I'm also entering Allsorts 'Fabulous Florals' challenge, Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes', Cardz 4 Gals 'Butterflies or Dragonflies' and Crafty Friends 'Anything Goes' challenges.  The paper and ribbon are from my snippets drawer so I'm also visiting the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 6" x 4" kraft
Image: Vase of snowdrops (upcycled from greetings card)
Die: Tattered Lace 'Mini Butterflies'
Embossing: Xcut 'Swirls'
Snippets: Vanilla pattered paper, brown ribbon

I embossed the paper, trimmed it and attached it to the card front.  The vase of snowdrops was already fussy cut and I used foam tape to attach it to the centre of the card.  I die cut two mini butterflies and attached them either side of the vase.  To finish, I attached a small bow to the top of the vase.
