Watercolor With Butterfly Basics

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly do appreciate each of you more than you know!

The card I'm sharing with you today is another created using the gorgeous Butterfly Basics die from Stampin' Up! I LOVE the intricate dies in the set and have teamed it with an easy to create background using my never before used (NBUS) Aqua Painters...

Card: Crumb Cake 10" x 5" folded to create a square base, with extra for the butterfly. Whisper White 4 3/4" square
Ink: Melon Mambo
Die: Butterfly Thinlits
Tools and embellishments: Aqua Painters and Basics Pearls colored with Melon Mambo Blendabilities

The card is perfect for the latest challenge at CAS-ology...
