Bird and Butterflies Easel Card ODBDSLC113

I made this card for Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge ODBDSLC113 Three or more stamps. This time I am using colors which are a bit outside my comfort zone, so I'm not sure whether I am happy with this card or not. The DP is from K&Co.

I took out all of my ODBD stamp sets and picked three which had elements I liked together. The two medallions are from the Bird & Butterfly Labels Set. I stamped them with Distress Peeled Paint, and cut them out with Spellbinders Labels Eighteen. Then I chose the phrase from the Simple Things Set, since it fit the oval perfectly. I stamped another medallion in green and stamped the phrase inside the medallion with VersaMagic Aegean Blue because it was the closest to the color in the background paper. (It matches much better in person). I cut that out around the oval, keeping some of the green oval frame, and mounted it dimensionally over the oval on the medallion.

For the bottom of the easel, I decided to add butterflies from the 2 Step Butterflies Set on either side of the medallion. The butterflies were cut with the matching Grunge Butterfly Die.

I used Krylon 18 Karat Gold around each of the separate elements, and gold pearls in two of the corners and on each butterfly's head.
