Butterflies and Bench Birthday Card

Good morning friends!  I have a Garden Bench card to share today, with lots of photos. I took the bits and pieces with me to demo at Paper Pastimes a few months ago but haven't shared the card yet. I thought you might like to see how I cut the different pieces:

I had the embellishments cut, assembled and glittered before arriving at the Demo, but I didn't trim the papers as I wanted to show the ladies how I do it. You can see the Garden Bench is cut into the blue patterned papers I wanted to use for the top and bottom of my card.  These were taped in place onto the white card and I cut the Garden Bench from both layers. Then I removed the taped pieces but I knew they would fit perfectly around the bench when I went to adhere them.  I carefully snipped the bench portions off, then adhered the patterned paper inside my white Garden Bench card.

I remembered to take pictures of the finished card before I packed up after the demo:
