Good Monday morning! This week's Outlines Design Team challenge is to make a Spring themed card. When I think of Spring I think of pastels, especially Robin's egg blue! For my card, I used Butterfly Square Large (E-519) and stamped it five times. The base layer of the focal image was stamped using Memento Rich Cocoa and all the other images were stamped using VersaColor Celadon and then heat embossed with clear powder. I used the center portion of three images for the three square elements on the right side of my card and cut the butterfly out of the last one and popped it up on top of my focal image.
My patterned papers are from Kaisercraft's Secret Bird Society 6x6 pad and I colored my image using Pebbles Shimmerz chalks and a Dove blender pen. I added Light Rose Swarovski crystals (sizes 7 and 12) to the border and Light Green Pearl Paint pen to the butterfly's body and spots.
