Summer Colors and Butterflies
Our challenge this week is to use hot summer colors, I think I got that covered, lol. I am using a really great sketch from Mojo Monday, I chose the round version. To create the base of my card, I used my Scalloped Circle Mega Doily Reflections dies; also for the scalloped circle behind the sentiment. To create the scalloped edge on the rectangle panel, I used Scalloped Square Mega Doily Reflections dies. The size of the scallops match so they coordinate really well. I used the largest die in the Silver Circle Little Stackers die set to cut the red dotted panel behind the sentiment. It is the perfect size to fit in the scalloped circle.
The largest butterfly is from the Exotic Butterflies Small 2 set, the smaller ones are from the Exotic Butterflies Small set. Just look at the lacy beauty of these dies. And the fact that you get 3 butterflies in each set is a bonus! I added some Viva Decor Pearl pen accents on the scallops as well as the bodies of the butterflies. All of the DP is from the Basic Grey June Bug 6x6 paper pad. Finished size is 6.5".
