Today's challenge was to take one of designer Maile Belle's projects as a source of inspiration. I think the "Life Is Beautiful" Butterfly is my favorite for 2014 and I paired it with "Watercolor Wonder", another of her stamp sets.
This card took a lot of painstaking prep work. I did a partial die cut for the Butterfly (that took a couple of tries) and then experimented with the right colors for the butterfly wings (a few more try-sies), and the splash of watercolor inspiration. I LOVE how the watercolor splash came out with 3 shades of color. I found the sentiment and added a sprinkle of sequins.
