Art Gallery Butterfly

Howdy all. Still stamping and watching basketball. Family bracket challenge makes it fun! Here is a creation for today. Modified from where I was originally headed, but that is OK. I know what I like. The first attempt was NOT it! This is better.

This has been floating around in my head since I saw it last week as a sketch challenge over at TGIF. The challenge is closed, but I wanted to give it a try anyway. The colors came from a another challenge and this is where I modified. The challenge was Blackberry Bliss, Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, Balmy Blue and gold. That is more colors than I generally work with, and definitely too many for this layout. The flower is Highland Heather for the back layer, Gorgeous Grape on the front. I initially did the butterfly with Balmy Blue and Blackberry Stampin' Blends but I didn't like it. Ripped it off (gently!) and redid with Balmy and Highland. Much better! Card base is Gorgeous Grape with accent layers of both Balmy Blue and Highland Heather. Shimmery white background embossed with the Painted Texture 3D folder. Gold accents are Gold Glitter Enamel Dots. Great birthday card to add to my stash and hopefully send someone soon!

Thanks for stopping by today! Headed back upstairs for hopefully more cards. Unless the games get too good! Hard to stamp and watch!! I'm working on thank you notes for last month and hopefully a few more birthday cards. Coloring butterflies :) Product details and shopping links below.
