Butterfly Friends

Hi there :) I made this card completely by using the sketch inspiration from MFT Sketch Challenge and the color and stash inspiration from the Butterfly Challenge. I took a look at this sketch:

MFT Sketch Challenge 322 #mftstamps

…And then saw that the Butterfly Challenge had the theme of G is for Glossy Accents, with the color option of Slate Blue. I stamped the butterflies (Inkadinkadoo) all over the backing paper, then cut the frame from some slate blue card stock with my Cricut. I traced where the frame would sit, then used my Prismacolors to only color the inside part…..Of course using blue shades….Including the slate. I took a strip of ivory edged with some black pinstriping, then a strip of white, which I stamped a LDRS sentiment on.  Finally, I stamped and colored one more butterfly, which I covered with Glossy Accents, and added it as an accent.  The joys of photography (when it’s a bit dark), don’t really show off the colors in a true way, or the shine of the Glossy Accents….unless you really zoom in a lot.   I think this makes a cheerful, yet classy card for a friend!!

I’d also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
