Its a card with a lot of ingredients and a big set of instructions but I have made all the embellishments and if you wanted to simplify things you could use bought embellishments from your stash.

Cut the Nit Wit Pastel Dreams dark pink paper to mat and layer onto the base card but do not stick down.
Using a piece of Cut n Dry foam shade the edges of the pink paper with the Tim Holtz Picked Raspberry Distress Ink.
Stick the paper onto the 6" x 6" base card.

Go to the link Black and White Spotty Background Paper (which will take you to a page on my blog) and select the image and save the image to the pictures file on your computer.
Open the spotty background paper file in your graphics program and re size to 12.5cm x 12.5cm and print onto good quality mat print paper.
If the spots appear fuzzy go over them with a black fine tip pen to sharpen them up.
Cut the image down to 12.5cm x 12.5cm.
Stick the spotty paper onto the base card at a jaunty angle.

In your graphics program import the Little Claire Dalmation in Flowers digi stamp and re size it so that the grass at the bottom of the image measures 8cm from side to side.
Print the image onto good quality card.
Cut the image to size (8.5cm x 7.5cm).
Colour in the image with your choice of colouring in implements.
Mat and layer the coloured image onto pink card.
Stick the image topper onto the base card at  jaunty angle.

Using the Little Claire Rebeccas Really Useful Female Stamp Set "Gran Daughter" and the Versa Fine black ink pad stamp the sentiment onto white card.
Cut the sentiment out using the Tattered Lace Essentials Circles Die No 5.
Tint the edges of the sentiment with the Tim Holts Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and apply using a piece of Cut n Dry foam.
Using a paint brush apply wet glue to the outside edge of the sentiment, sprinkle with Glamour Dust glitter, shake off the excess and allow to dry.
Stick the sentiment onto the base card.
Using the Tonic butterfly boot punch and a scrap of the Nit Wit Pastel Dreams dark pink paper punch out a butterfly.
Bend the butterfly wings back and stick onto the sentiment.

Using the Marianne Creatables Flower Die LR0110 cut one flower from white card.
Tint the flower using Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass Distress Ink on the outside of the petals and Tim Holtz Salty Ocean Distress Ink at the centre of the petals.
Shape the petals slightly.
Brush the flower with wet glue.
Sprinkle Glamour Dust glitter over the flower, shake off the excess and allow to dry.
Cut a circle of the Nit Wit Pastel Dreams dark pink paper and bevel it.
Stick the bevelled pink circle onto the centre of the flower (I always use  glue gun when gluing onto glitter. With this centre I put a circle of glue around the middle of the flower to hold the bevelled pink centre and hen I was happy with the position I turned the flower over and through the hole in the centre I squeezed more hot glue to fill the void).
Stick the flower onto the card.

On a piece of white card stamp the Hobbycraft sentiment using the Versa Fine black ink pad.
Cut the sentiment to size.
Mat and layer the sentiment onto black card.
Stick the sentiment onto the base card.

Using the Joy Crafts Floral Flourishes Leaves Die 6003 0001 cut out both leaves.
Using the Cut n Dry foam and the Tim Holts Distress Inks Shabby Shutters, Mowed Lawn and Evergreen Bough colour in the leaves.
Shape the leaves and stick onto the base card but remember to place the stalks of the leaves under the flower petals.

Punch out 3 dots from black card using the ring binder hole punch.
Bevel the dots and stick to the top right of the card.
