Butterfly Flight

Hello friends!
Today I have a card to share that was created for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog.
If you've not popped over to see the wonderful creations
shared by the Inspiration Team ... please do so now.   My team mates
come up with some of the most awesome creations using
dies purchased from the Dies R Us Store.

Today's card was really very easy to create and I think it packs a beautiful punch!

The first thing I did was die cut my Poppystamp 'Bellina Butterfly Collage' #1396
die onto a piece of black card stock that was 1/4" smaller than my card base.
Next, I cut a piece of white card stock 1/4" smaller than the black butterfly panel.  By randomly sponging various Tim Holtz distress inks, I've created my 'colorful' butterflies.

After 'doodling' around the outer edge of my black panel, I adhered dimensional tape between the sponged panel and the overlay butterfly panel. A couple pretty sequins and this adorable Technique Tuesday - Say It 'Hugs'  #DIY098 sentiment and my card is ready to write a note on the inside and mail.  I think it's sure to bring an immediate smile to the recipient!

Please be sure to take a minute and check out all the fabulous dies available
at the Dies R Us Store!  AND, don't forget we have a Dies R Us Challenge Blog too!
A fun new challenge is offered on the 1st and 15th of each month with a PRIZE VOUCHER
offered to one lucky winner each challenge.  It could be YOU!

Oh Darlene! Lots of drama with the black on the watercolor panel! The doodled edge just pops too!
