I just picked up Stampin' Up's Butterfly Beauty dies - they are retiring and on sale. I don't know why I waited so long. The main die that I'm using on this card is stunning and there are many, many other smaller butterflies. It's a great set.
The colors at The Color Throwdown were definitely butterfly-ish! Not so much the colors in their graphic, but they list the colors as red, orange, yellow and kraft so perfect for my classic butterfly. I brushed red ink, a few oranges and yellows in a circular pattern, then cut the background butterflies. I topped it with white. I knew I was going to put it on kraft, but needed a little something extra. I was looking for inspiration - browsing my stash and browsing various challenges. When I saw the sketch at As You See It, inspiration struck and I used an embossing folder to give me a border. Thanks to both challenges for the inspiration!!
