B is for Butterfly

     I found a different challenge the other day and made this card from their inspiration 'wheel.'  It's Called Butterfly Challenge and each time they choose as letter from the alphabet and give three color options and three theme options, and you can choose any one color and one theme to combine plus you must use a butterfly.

     I did this card using all the colors and themes: lavender, lemon, & light blue plus lace, layers & letters.  What do you think?

     The quilt die is from Gina Marie and I used it to cut scrap paper from my stash plus light/medium blue and lavender CS.  I used the light blue as the 'frame' then inset the blue and lavender CS pieces.  I filled the remaining spots with the flowery dp.

     I layered white lace onto lemon yellow CS, then added the quilt piece on top.  I printed the sentiment and hand cut it, layering it onto a banner flag.  The final touch was the embroidered butterfly, done in lemon yellow.  It was quite a challenge getting all 7 items but it felt good when I finished and I really love the result.
