Butterfly Card ~ Color Dare #542

Welcome to the our latest color challenge at Color My Heart Color Dare. Each Friday we go live with a new challenge to get you started. Create Any paper craft you like. We reference Close To My Heart colors but you can use any brand you have as long as you can make a very close match. Kind of close doesn't count. 

When you're ready to join our challenge click here for the direct link.

For this challenge you need to use at least 3 of the 7 colors in the graphic. I ended up using 4 of the colors: Seabrook, Periwinkle, Peach and Shortbread.

The Seabrook layer is dry embossed with a the folder (link below). The butterfly is completely made with the Thin Cut dies and cardstock.  The body of the butterfly is Shortbread cardstock then painted with Shortbread Shimmer Brush

The sentiments and small butterfly are from the Life's a Hoot Cardmaking Workshop stamp set. Exclusive Inks used are Periwinkle and Peach. There is a layer of Vellum under the butterfly. This softens the colors in the background making the butterfly stand out a bit more. 

The wings of the butterfly are popped up with some Thin Foam Tape giving a bit of dimension. I also added some Clear Sparkles  and Bitty Sparkles to the butterfly. All of this went on a card base from our White Cards and Envelopes Value Pack. This is a great item to have in your stash so you're always ready to make a card when needed.
