These are some of the steps I took to create this card.  After determining the size of my card layers, I held them together with sticky notes.  At this point I wasn't sure how I would arrange the patterned paper, cross, leaves and butterfly.

I glued together the Crushed Curry card base and Dusty Durango card layer.  I determined the best layout for the DSP, cross and sentiment.

I stamped the sentiment on the Whisper White cardstock and attached this layer to the card. 

I used temporary adhesive to hold the lattice cross in place.  I moved the leaves around and decided how I wanted to place the leaves and butterfly. 

I took another cross and set of leaves, mimicked the leaf layout and glued the leaves in place on the cross.

I glued the finished cross to my card.

I glued one embossed butterfly directly on the card.  I placed a Dimensional to the other butterfly, lightly bent the wings and attached it to the card
