The designer paper is from Prima Botanical.  Some of the pieces are dry embossed.  The seam binding ribbon is one I received from a dear friend in a RAK.  The flourishes are created using the Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish.  The sentiment on the bottom of the easel card is framed with a Classic Oval die from Spellbinders.  The butterflies are made with a Martha Stewart Classic Butterfly punch.  



 The Next stop on the hop is Julie...I know she will have lots of inspiration for you!
