When I saw the simplicity of the sketch at the Freshly Made Sketches challenge and the bright colors from the Color Throwdown challenge, I knew the combination of the two was going to cheer me up this dreary, rainy day. I must say it did! And, it was a given that I'd use butterflies.
The Tempting Turquoise layer was first stamped with VersaMark using the spatters from the Avant Garden stamp set. I added it to a card base of Whisper White Thick cardstock. I punched the larger butterfly from Tangerine Tango and Vellum using the Elegant Butterfly Punch. Then, I punched the small butterfly from Daffodil Delight and Vellum using the Bitty Butterfly Punch. I adhered the Vellum butterflies onto the same size colored ones and added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to cover the line of glue you could see through the Vellum. The sentiment is from the Rose Garden stamp set and stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
