Butterfly For You

I am loving the Double Trouble challenges - they offer a lot of variety and different types of challenges to spark your creativity. 

Thing 1 - create what you want as it is an open challenge.

Thing 2 gives you the option to link up with any of a number of listed challenges. 

Thing 3 is to use pink as the dominant colour on your project.

I used a sketch I found on Pinterest for the basis of my card. 

I random stamped the background paper and then used my Cricut to create the scalloped piece and the frame. The leaves were brushed with the Julep Shimmer Brush and the butterfly was coloured using Touch markers (although it is very light...) and then the centre was brushed with the Clear Shimmer Brush. 

Two pieces were embossed and then it didn't take long to assemble the card, after which 
I added a few pink gems.

I am linking my card up with the Double Trouble challenge as well as The Paper Girls 
(their theme is anything goes).
