MIM #202: Anchoring With Border & Banner Dies & Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Did someone say layering?
Loving layers as I do, Melissa Phillips' MIM video
  set me spinning with stamps, dies, inks, watercolors,
and even embossing!

Background was watercolored, then while still wet,
stamped some ferns from Meadow Greens.
Then came the layers.
Flowers and leaves from Cutting Garden stamped with Berry Sorbet & Pure Poppy.
Leaves are Simply Chartreuse, tipped with Summer Sunrise, Melon Berry & Ripe Avocado.
Melissa had the most beautiful creation, with her layered butterfly,
so I had to try one from Life is Beautiful.
Border die from Confetti Garland, embossed.
I looked everywhere for the name of the top loopy dies, couldn't find it. They came from
my scrap stash.
Top button die in felt.
Sentiment from Banner Sentiments.
That's about it. As for mailing, it has so many ups and downs, better hand deliver this one!

Catch Melissa's video here, she never disappoints!
