Colorful Butterflies Card ODBDSLC145


Wow, these butterflies really aren't quite as bright as they look on here. In fact, I was thinking they weren't bright enough when I finished the card!

I made this card for the Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge ODBDSLC145 Sketch. The design is from the Faith Set, and was cut using ODBD's Custom Butterfly Branch Die.

The medallion behind it was cut with ODBD's Custom Elegant Oval Dies. All stamping and shading was done using Memento Cottage Ivy, and all coloring was done with Copics. The embossed background is Spellbinders M-Bossabilities, Mystic.

All the stamping and die cuts were done on Core'dinations Pearl, to give the card a bit of shimmer. All the outlining was done with a Sakura Pentouch Metallic Ink Marker.

The ribbon and pearls are all from my stash. After finishing the card, it needed something, but I couldn't find anything I liked, so I added a bow to the top. Now that the card is finished, I wish I had tried a dimensional butterfly to the lower left instead.
