I'm fluttering in at the last minute with a card for the latest Butterfly Challenge - quite by chance really because after I'd made the card I decided to take a look to see if it would fit any of the challenge colours or items this time. How lucky that I'd chosen a dark purple for my main colour. I started by colouring a piece of watercolour paper with inks and Pixie powders and printing a suitable background paper. A circle was cut from the inked paper and the sentiment stamped into the centre; then the floral ring was cut from some pearl card before adding individual violas die cut from the inked scraps. Finally I die cut a flourish and three butterflies to finish off this card, adding a few 'diamonds' for a bit of sparkle.
