Butterfly Trio

What do you get when you combine two great challenges, butterflies and the Inlaid Die Cut Technique?  A very pretty 5" x 5" card that is destined for my favorite oldest granddaughter who recently moved to Reno, Nevada.  To clarify, I have two granddaughters so I have a favorite oldest and a favorite youngest.  And, to further clarity, I have seven grandsons who are all my favorites.  :-)

For this card, I combined the Retrosketches Challenge sketch with Hayley's colors from the Colour Me...! Challenge.  I have really taken to the Inlaid Die Cut Technique.  It's fun and really quite easy to do.

    1. Thanks, Ren! They are colors I don't normally use so it was fun to step out of my comfort zone. They are great colors.

  2. Very pretty! Love the colors and pretty butterflies! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Retro Sketches!
