Karen Burniston's Pop It Ups Designer Challenge Easter Card

 Yay! It's Karen Burniston's Designer Challenge time of the month again, with the theme of Spring and/or Easter!
 I chose to use the Katie Label Pivot Card die, and stuck some floral paper from American Craft's Dear Lizzie Polka Dot Party 12x12 pad onto white card stock. I made sure not to use any tape runner on the area of the pivoting parts, so that I could remove the patterned paper and leave the label parts white.
For the labels, I added more layers from the Katie Label set, with foam pads. 
For the sentiment, I had a brilliant time last night doing some calligraphy, and experimenting with Elizabeth Craft Design's fabulous Microfine Glitter... I used Teal Indian Ink with a Brause EF66 pen nib, and while the ink was still wet I sprinkled it with Sky Microfine Glitter. This morning I was really excited to find that the glitter had stuck really firmly onto the dried ink, and even rubbing it quite hard wouldn't remove it!
I also added the Small Butterfly die layers to the first label.
 I added a larger butterfly to the second label, using the Pop It Ups Butterfly Accessory dies.
I wanted an all-white kind of floral corner, and used loads of different flowers and leaves (from the sets listed at the bottom) plus ECD's Flourish With Flowers die. I used an assortment of plain white card stock, white vellum and white glitter card. 
I used ECD Peel-off Glitter Dots for the flower centres.
I added a different floral paper to the card front and back, and just a few more layered flowers.
