I've used several challenges to make this card, they are:
- CAS(E) this Sketch! - CTS#71 - sketch
- Uniko Studio Challenge - USC#8 - Colours & Hello Spring
- Time Out Challenge - TOC#2 - Home Sweet Home photo inspiration
- The Card Concept - CC#7 - Butterfly theme
I love the colours in the Uniko Studio graphic, that was the start of this card, butterflies appear are in both Card Concept and the Time Out graphics and when I saw the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch - it all fell into place! I made the card base from pale green card and cut a white panel to go on top. I stamped a spatter pattern using Brilliance inks (they have a subtle shimmer). I stamped the sentiment, made the little banner and adhered it to the card. I stamped the butterflies, using Brilliance ink, on to white card and again on vellum and used the matching dies to cut them out. I attached one butterfly flat to the card and then used dimensional gel to adhere the vellum overlay. I finished the front with a few gems. On the inside, I cut another white panel and stamped some flowers and added a couple more vellum butterflies.
That's all for today - I'm going to make a nice hot cup of coffee, wrap myself in a blanket and curl up to watch a movie. See you soon!
