Butterflies & Blooms for #AYSI292 and #GDP382 Challenges

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by the Raindrops On Roses Challenge over @ As You See It Challenge.  My favourite thing about spring is Butterflies & Blooms, I always look for the plants bursting forth in the garden and the butterflies that appear!  The terrific sketch over @ Global Design Project inspired the placement of the butterflies with the blended colours behind it.  Please click the hyperlinks to visit the blog challenges, and enjoy the inspiration!  




***  The Trix  ***

*  Use DSP for the detailed butterfly die cut image - The Brilliant Wings Dies, #155523 come with two coordinating die cut shapes.   Use coordinating cardstock for the solid image and the Fancy Flora DSP, #160413 for the detailed die cut image.   Adhere together with glue.  *Trix* dot the glue in the centre of the detailed die cut, allow to dry a bit until tacky and then adhere to the solid cardstock die cut so the glue doesn't smoosh out.

*  Highlight the butterflies  -  Blend colours from the coordinating DSP onto a 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" layer of Basic White cardstock.  I followed the sketch to create the swirls of Orchid Oasis, Balmy Blue & Pool Party before embossing with the Painted Posies 3D Embossing Folder, #159175

*  Adhere the butterflies with glue to the embossed layer, stamp the sentiment from the Something Fancy Stamp set, #160416 with Orchid Oasis ink on a scrap of Basic White cardstock, and adhere to the embossed layer with dimensionals.  Embellish with Iridescent Pearls Basic Jewels, #158987 then adhere the layer to the 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Basic White Thick card base.

  3. I love the blended blues on those butterflies Lesley and they add a lovely pop of colour yet still allow the embossed detail of the card base to shine through. Thanks for playing along with us over at As You See It this week!
