Butterfly Thanks, RS108, CTD286 & CC7

Hello once again, my friends! It's almost starting to feel like spring here in NY, and I think today's card echos that feeling. I did lots of die cutting but used very little ink, only for the sentiment. I'm pretty happy with the way it came out and I love these colors together.

I was able to combine three challenges today, the sketch from Retro Sketches, the colors from Color Throwdown and the theme challenge from The Card Concept, which it to use butterflies. The Card Concept also likes you to name your style, which I will call Clean & Layered.

The yellow butterfly was cut with the Beautiful Butterflies Die and the smaller two with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit. I adhered the layers together with just a drop of Liquid Tombo in the center. It's perched on the leaves with a single Dimensional, which allows the wings to flutter.

Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Lots of Thanks
Card Stock: Whisper White, Pool Party, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive
Designer Series Paper: Quatrefancy, Brights and Subtles Stacks
Ink Pads: Old Olive
Tools: Big Shot, Beautiful Butterflies Die, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Little Leaves Sizzlit
