TCC151 Brilliant Butterfly

 Happy Wednesday, all!  Our Card Concept challenge for this week is a brilliant one:

I had a few ideas in my head, but since I usually don't tend to go for bright jewel colors, I thought I would use them, but in a minimal way!  So here we go:

My card base of Thick White cardstock was embossed with lines created with a stylus and my scoring board.  I added a panel of Magenta Madness and True Love DSP, then did a watercolor background on a piece Shimmery White cardstock with some Pacific Point ink.  I stamped the butterfly from Positive Thoughts and added some deeper shades of PP and Granny Apple Green.  I cut it out with some circular dies, and rhinestones added some sparkle.

Finally, a sentiment from Ornate Thanks, also stamped in Pacific Point and diecut with the same Stitched So Sweetly dies finished off my clean-and layered card:

I hope you'll play along with us; if you need to identify the different concepts we feature at The Card Concept, check out our blog, then play along!  Can't wait to see you there!

Thanks for popping in today---enjoy it and be blessed!

I absolutely love your watercolored background. It makes for such a pretty card. The way you've used the Magenta Madness is perfect to tone it down! Gorgeous smiles on your pretty ladies.
