Paper Piecing for Lawnscaping

Hi everyone! How are you today? Here it was bank holiday, so got lots of crafting done, yay! Today I have this card to share with you:
Lots of paper piecing on this one, as it is what the current Lawnscaping's challenge required. I got to use one of my new stamp sets from Lawn Fawn, Blissful Botanicals, and I love it!
I started by stamping the flowers and butterflies on a piece of white cardstock and on the label I cut using my silhouette. I use distress inks and an ink applicator to color the label in blue, as to mimic the sky. Then I color the other flowers and butterflies using my promarkers, and I cut them all.
I started to glue everything down onto the label, giving some dimension to the butterflies.
I used the Canvas Stripes stamp from Hero Arts for the front of the card, by stamping it a couple of times using Antique Linen distress ink. I used the same ink to distress the edges of the card, after I rounded the corners using my Corner Chomper.
Added the label to the front of the card, and stamped the sentiment (one of the free "thank you" stamps you get with the Lawn Fawn orders) with Black Memento ink. Then I added some pearls and some Glossy Accents to finish the card.
You still have time to enter this challenge from Lawnscaping, so go over there and create something!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you liked it!!
