Growing butterflies...

Wow, talk about a brightly colored card! I think I may have went overboard on the yummy new color combo that DeNami's newest uber talented DT member, Emily, has for us. It matches so well with the new spring release!

 If you saw this in person, you'd realize just how much this card really jumps out at you. I just love how bright and fun it turned out...

Take a close look at the butterflies...I couldn't decide how to color them. Then I came up with a great idea...don't color them at all! I used my distress ink tool along with 2 shades of regular ink and created some pretty pink shaded paper. I just love the soft look I managed to acheive. I used silver embossing powder to give them some real pop.

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think....good or bad....or even better - what would you have done differently??...crafty minds wanna know!
