Spiral Pop-up

I found a brilliant pop-up card on Splitcoast Stampers and decided to make one. The DP is from a 12x12 pad from Dovcraft (Kate Knight Aquamarine Floral Prints) and then I printed out the sentiments then cut and mounted them with Nestabilies. I decided to use acetate for the spiral and the butterflies (stamps - Clear Choice 20 Best Friends) and then coloured the butterflies with Alcohol Inks (Pearl Mixative, Cool Peri, Stream and Wild Plum). I edged the paper on the front of the card with a Geo Punch (Daisy) and added flowers (white from Wild Orchid, green made with a Woodware punch, Mauve from Cardology Precious Petals)
I am entering this in the new Stamp Man challenge and Die Cut Dreams (Acetate used for butterflies and spiral) .
