A butterflies 'thanks' card, in blue and brown


One of my all time fav color combo is blue hues and brown hues. Usully, it reminds me of seaside and sand, but this time I'm in the 'butterfly mood'...

I blended several TH's disress inks - Broken China, Faded Jeans and Peacock Feathers, on a textured white cs. I then die cut 4 stitched squares and mounted them with foam tape.

I stamped the butterfly twice, with Pink Fresh inks - Doe and Warm Buff, fussy cut them and adhered them partially overlapping each other, with foam tape. I then adhered the two of them on the bluish squares with foam tape.

Before adhering the squares and butterflies, I stamped the sentiment with Pink Presh ink Gathered Twigs.

I added a thin stripe of turquoise cs for more interest, and some translucent dots.

It goes for the following challenges:
