Assembly & Trix:

*  The ***Trix with this card is to use blending brushes.  I was delighted to see how the colours change on the Very Vanilla 3 1/x x 4 1/2 cardstock layer, the Crushed Curry is almost luminescent, its always hard to get the full effect from a photo.

*  Add droplets of water to the blended layer to dilute the colour in areas and enhance the overall effect of layers of colour.

***Trix, frame the blended layer with 2 colours,  a 1 3/4 x  4 9/16 piece of Pumpkin Pie (its just a smidge bigger) & a 1 7/8 x4 5/8 piece of Crushed Curry.  Glue the blended layer to the Pumpkin Pie first, then glue to the Crushed Curry layer, (this layer is bigger).  Just for a bit of interest :)  before adhering to the Basic Gray 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base.

*  Die cut the Brilliant Wings Dies from Very Vanilla cardstock and adhere with glue.  ***Trix curl the edges of the butterflies a bit with your finger first before adhering.

*  Stamp the sentiment from Sending Smiles Stamp Set, #158701 with Basic Gray ink and adhere to the card with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.  Embellish with Classic Matte Dots, #158146
