Bold Butterfly Fab Friday!

Hello all! Hope your weekend is going well! We started with some back breaking sweaty work outside - weeding the garden! After that we pretty much crashed! We have a bit more to do, we'll see if that happens tomorrow morning before the heat kicks in!!

I decided I needed some time in the stamp room, but before I headed that way I browsed through some challenges. I didn't initially print or save the image for this one, but it stuck with me. I've always had a thing for rainbows and I think that is why my brain kept going back! Then I saw a card on Pinterest created in a similar way with a now retired stamp set and punch and I started looking to see what I had that would work! Here is the card I created.

Based on this Color Challenge from Fab Friday!

I started with my background of Whisper White and scanned through my sets that I thought would work for a background. I didn't want to solid or bold so I settled on this dotted image from the Timeless Textures set. I didn't try to get them even or perfectly lined up, just somewhat spaced OK for the top to bottom coverage. Then I cut a butterfly in each of the colors using the Bold Butterfly Framelit. The saying is from Watercolor Wings. I have trouble not putting a saying of some sort, but this one needed to be fairly small for the bottom corner. Perfect fit!

I staggered the butterflies and tried to overlap just a little while attaching each near its background color. Lastly I added a large White Perfect Accent. Love the little pop that gives them! The Whisper White with butterflies was layered onto Daffodil Delight and then a card base of Bermuda Bay.

Thanks for stopping by! Product details below. I'm heading back up and have a few other cards here to post from previous stamping time. Come back again soon!

I think you hit a homerun with this one! Great choices of speckled background stamps and open airy butterflies! Even with all of these colors you made a light and bright card! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

Genius idea to use these playful butterflies for the color challenge! I love the little dotty bands in the background to set them off, too! Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!
