My card is an inspiration from Brandi Bergh. She made her card in blue and it was so pretty I could wait to make it in this Sangria color! 

This is an easy card to make. The layers are built up on the front of the card base. Pattern paper from our Special called You are Enough. Next is cardstock then the white layer. Other than the white cardstock the Sangria color is what you see. Sometimes it looks really nice to go monochromatic and let the details in the image shine! 

The butterfly was cut using our new Butterfly Thin Cuts. I used the Coordinating cardstock to the You are Enough paper for the base and Sangria cardstock for the top layer. The sentiment comes from the gorgeous May Stamp of the Month called Flowers for You. I think I've used some part of this stamp set on every project I've made this month! You really NEED Flowers for You!!! It's only available until May 31st so don't wait....get it now!

After adding the sentiment a couple of sequins finished the look! Remember to add embellisments in groups of odd numbers. Your eyes look at that as a balance.  Hint: If you do an even number your eyes keep searching for more. So if you feel your eyes roaming over your project count your embellishments to see if you have that odd number!
