Score the black cardstock, and fold it to form the base card. Cut two rectangles of patterned paper diagonally. Use a resulting triangle of each pattern to create a mat on the front of the black card. Glue a strip of coordinating ribbon across the diagonal, to cover the seam.
Paint the chipboard frame with the black acrylic paint and let it dry. Cut a square of white cardstock that fits the opening of the chipboard frame. Stamp the sentiment in coral ink in the center of the white square. Mount the frame on the white square with clear drying glue, and set it aside to dry.
Stamp the vintage background stamp twice on white paper using black ink. Trim one image closely around the outer edge, and lightly sponge the guava ink on the word area. From other background image, cut out the butterfly, and the leaves from the edges of the image. Stamp 3 of the smaller posy flowers in black and cut them out with the Posy Patch die. Stamp the single rose from the Classic Bella Rose set in black, and cut it out with the Bella Rose die. Using COPIC markers, color the roses (E04, R37), leaves (YG91, YG93), and posies (YR00, YR02, E04). Color the butterfly with SPICA pens (blossom, peach, pitch black).
Mount the full background image on a piece of black cardstock, and center it on the front of the card. Mount the sentiment in the upper right corner. Mount the butterfly on the edge of the chipboard. Using foam dots, add the leaves and main rose over the matching images on the background. Glue the posies onto the background. Add a pearl in the center of the posies that are not layers. Lastly, using glitter glue and the gala glitz add a generous center to the stacked posies.
