Memory Box Butterflies

Happy Hump Day Everyone!
Last week I told you about a new monthly challenge by Memory Box
and today I have another card to share with you that
I'll be submitting to this 1st challenge which is themed 'Butterflies'.

Inside View
 I love the colors on my new Ken Oliver 'Watercolored Memories' 6x6 double sided paper ... one side is muted and the other side is bold.  As you can see, today's card utilizes the bold side of the paper.
The colors are so beautifully vivid I didn't want to cover them up ...
but rather ACCENT them and by using the fabulous Memory Box Fairyland Butterflies (#99078) 
I was able to achieve the look I was going for.

I die cut the MB Fairyland Butterflies TWICE then spot glued them
here and there so I could lift the outer wings and give the illusion of flight.

A simple sentiment is all that was required on
the front of my card so I chose a vertical sentiment stamped
in India Ink since the paper has a bit of a glossy finish.

Love the created background on your card Darlene. This photo inspiration calls out for these great bursts of color. I haven't yet tried these Ken Oliver bursts but they sure look fun. Take care and good luck.
