PTI Anniversary Challenge - Day 2

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.  

Inks:  PTI True Black, Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise and Orange Zest
Paper: PTI Stamper's White Select, Orange Zest
