Butterfly Ombré

Hi!  Today I'm dropping in to share a card with you I made yesterday.  I was inspired by a few challenges.  I got to use one of my new die cuts and my Evolution die cutting machine for this card too.  I love my Evolution.  It's awesome!  :-)

Anyway, here's my card...


So, first I took a white panel and embossed it with my flourish folder (Darice).  Then I cut four one inch square pieces of white card stock and sponged on my four colours (spiced marmalade, mustard seed, broken china, victorian velvet distress inks) creating an ombré effect.  Then I adhered them to my embossed panel.  Next I die cut my butterfly (Simon Says Stamp) from white cardstock and adhered it to my panel centered in the squares.  Lastly, I attached my panel to my card base with foam dots.  I really like how this card turned out and I love that delicate butterfly.  I was going to put a sentiment but decided it didn't really need one.

Well, I hope you enjoyed your visit today and I hope you have an excellent weekend!

I'm linking up to the following challenges:

Addicted to CAS - code word is Butterfly.
CAS(E) This Sketch - I stayed pretty true to the sketch except for omitting the sentiment.


Waffle Flower Challenge - I was inspired by the colours and tried to mimic those ombré panels.
