Butterflies and Bling




Today's card was made while having fun with watercolors. I cut the vertical strip with a Lil Inkers diagonal stitched die, and made the large butterfly with MB Vivienne and Darla dies. The smaller butterflies were done with 2 sizes of Punch-a-Bunch punches. I used some turquoise cardstock to accent the butterflies and used a piece of light mint textured cardstock for the base. The final touch was to add lots of bling to finish this card. I didn't add a sentiment yet because I think it can be used for almost any occasion.

I'm entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge which is to use this Inspiration Sweet Treats color swatch.....


I'm also sharing this over at the Snippets Playground #175/76.

Have a great Thursday, and thanks for stopping by!

I don't know how I missed this one yesterday, it's beautiful. The colours are so pretty and I love the touch of turquoise which adds a nice bit of contrast.
