Watercolor Wings

CCMC361Is it really Thursday already again?  Boy…time is flying by this summer!  Well, since it is Thursday, it is time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge and this week we have a FUN sketch Challenge!  I have to say…this is soooo not a typical card from me but I have totally fallen in LOVE with this print from the English Garden dsp pack!  I just LOVE the colors! and used them to inspire my card!

Here’s the details…

  • So Saffron – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Yellow/Green flower print (English Garden dsp) – 4 7/8 x 3 5/8, Layer onto Delightful Dijon – 5 x 3 3/4.
  • Mellow Moss dotted print (English Garden dsp) – 1 1/4 x 4 5/8.  Cut piece to crate banner and flag add using dimensions.
  • Wrap Very Vanilla Thick Twine around panel and add to card using dimensionals.
  • Pear Pizzazz – punch 2 1/2″ circle, add using dimensionals.
  • Stamp butterfly – base/So Saffron, outside edges of wings/Delighful Dijon stamped off once, inside stuff/Delight Dijon full strength, body and antenna/ Soft Suede.  I cut mine out instead of using framelit since I wanted the antenna on there and added to the circle.
  • Whisper White – 1/2 x 2 1/2, stamp greeting using Mossy Meadow, cut into banner and add to butter using dimensionals
  • Tie Very Vanilla Thick Twine into So Saffron button, add using dimesnionals.
