Purple Butterflies

Hi and welcome!  It's time for another challenge at Fusion and we've gone for a CAS sketch and a beautiful floral inspiration photo.

I stuck with the sketch for this card, even though I just love that photo!

My card was made using purples and yellows and I got out my Distress Oxide ink (again!) I colored and die-cut some of the butterflies from Avery Elle's Butterflies set and arranged them onto a sponged panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock.  Down each side of that panel, I layered a strip of Boysenberry cardstock.  The sentiment was die-cut from the same Boysenberry color and painted with clear sparkle pen.  The rest of the sentiment was white-embossed onto black.

Thanks so much for visiting!  The design team have some gorgeous cards using this challenge so be sure to check them out.

I'm linking this up to the current challenge at Time Out where they have a gorgeous butterfly-themed inspiration photo.

Gorgeous card, Karren! I love your color combo and how you added sparkle to all the die cuts...another beautiful background with your oxide inks, too! I think I'll have to order some of the Boysenberry's so pretty!
