Butterfly Duo ~ CTD45 & TECC 71


I used the Color Throwdown #45 and the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #71 for this bright and cheery card. I think this is the first time I've ever used Green Galore & Pixie Pink together...and I love it! Though, I must say the sketch was one of the more difficult ones I have done, but so worth the work:)



I'm not sure that I could describe the process I took in layering the slanted panel on, so I won't even try:) After stamping the butterflies and cutting them out by hand, I adhered them with mini glue dots and turned up the wings for a dimensional look.



Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly
Paper: Green Galore, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White CS, Petal Party SSK, Rainbow Sherbet DSP
Ink: Green Galore, Chocolate Chip
Other: Chocolate Chip 1/4" Grosgrain, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals

Very cool--that sketch looked like a real challenge, but you rocked it! I need to get this stamp set out-I haven't used it in a while!
