FS160, F4A1 - Butterflies

Yeah for March! Hoping for the arrival of sweet Spring weather here. How about you? With thoughts of Spring in mind, I made this card yesterday and it combines 2 challenges posted on Splitcoast -- The Featured Stamper Challenge #160 and the Free for All Challenge #1.
This week's featured stamper is Angella Crockett. Congratulations, Angella! Click here to see her lovely card that I cased. I kept Angella's wonderful design, butterflies and square shape. I changed the colors and DP. I also added ribbon and attached an embossed sentiment rather than stamping my sentiment directly on my card.
The F4A1 challenge is a spankin' new challenge on SCS. This week everyone was challenged to use texture, color and pattern on their creations. For my texture -- I used an embossed sentiment, ribbon, a flower and my butterflies. For color, we were to use a color we normally don't use -- I chose orchid opulence. For pattern -- I used my new PTI DP called Egg Hunt and a scrap of PTI dotted on my butterflies.
This was a fun card to make. It was a great surprise to discover how well the paper and butterfly die matched!
Have a wonderful week and thanks so much for stopping by!
Supplies: Stamps - none; Paper - PTI egg hunt and dotted DSP, SU! orchid opulence; Ink - SU! craft whisper white for sponging; Accessories - Cuttlebug butterfly die, Sizzix SU! embosslit sentiment, MS flower, SU! ribbon, and dimensionals.

  7. I love the yellow with the purple. Those butterflies are amazing, they don't look like paper. I also love that flower on your ribbon.
