Butterfly is Proof...

Hello ~ I couldn't let the color challenge from Color Throwdown pass me by as they're just too yummy to resist!

I created my top panel by scoring lines every 1/4 inch, adding the smaller Elizabeth Craft Designs Romantic Corner to opposite corners and then cutting the panel using a Stitched Rectangle.  What a pretty base this makes for any type of card!  

I used the Misti to stamp the sentiment from The Butterfly Is Proof a couple of times, making sure it had good coverage over the scored lines. At first I was thinking this card was done but then I decided it needed a little more.  I have a very hard time sticking with CAS cards.

I had this Garden Notes Aster left over from a previous project and the colors still fit within the challenge, so I used it.  I added a few leaves from Garden Notes Tulip that were left over as well and then some fun Flower Pot Prills.  These Watermelon Sequins were the perfect finishing touch!

I'll be adding this card to the following challenges:
Work It Wednesday ~ Summer Icons
Crop Stop ~ July Linky Party
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit
