CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #210

My second card as a Guest Designer for CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge, is a birthday card I made for my sister.  She will be celebrating a milestone birthday and will turn 60 on February 16th.  She loves purple so I always try to add the color somewhere on the cards I make for her.

For this one, I attached a strip of Graphic 45's Secret Garden Patterned Paper to a Whisper White Thick card base.  To be honest, I had planned to place a line of bakers twine down the center of the colored strip but forgot to add it before I attached everything.  Instead, I drew a line using my Elegant Eggplant Stampin' Write Marker.  It worked.

On a piece of Whisper White I stamped the sentiment from the Jar of Love stamp set using Elegant Eggplant.  Next, I cut it out using the Mini Frame 4 from Taylored Expressions.  The piece I used is actually the center of the frame.  I also cut one in Elegant Eggplant and placed the frame over the center cut using Stampin' Dimensionals.  The butterflies are punched from Elegant Eggplant using the Elegant Butterfly Punch.  I attached them using Tombow Multipurpose Glue.  Down the center of each butterfly, I placed some Rhinestone Basic Jewels.  The sentiment on the lower right is from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set.

Before I attached the frame and the butterflies, I spritzed them with some Radiant Rain Shimmering ICE Mist.  It added just a wee bit of sparkle to the card.
