Butterfly Challenge

Just read that Mrs A at the Butterfly Challenge
has reached the 2 years mark! Congratulations!

Thought I would like to enter the current challenge although there are only hours to go...

with this paint chip...

I also spotted this sketch at i {heart} card sketches and decided to combine the two...

So first of all I went to my 'blues' scrap folder and came up with a few possible pieces...

My card started with a square white pearlescent card blank
and the following triptych - the three parts from a screenprint...with added twine.

I  then stamped the butterfly with Versafine on another blue scrap and added some blue Promarker.
The stamp is from LC Designs Butterfly Flourish.
I used a circular die to cut out the buttefly overlapping the tips of the wings, and then mounted it on another circle.

Finally I added a die cut butterfly - KCK KUTZ fluttering Butterfly
and some "sapphires"!
Inside it has this sentiment from the same stamp set:

I will link this to the

Happy Crafting!!
