The Paper Players Color Challenge 249

Happy hump day! It's time to play with The Paper Players! A big thank you to Sandy who is hosting the color challenge for us this week. Real Red, Pool Party, Island Indigo are the challenge colors, so lets get to my card.  

I had to giggle while making this card. A red, white and blue butterfly, how patriotic! Well there may not be such a thing but it was sure fun to create.

Let's Get To The Details
  • Prepare a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 Whisper White card base
  • Cut CS layers: 5 1/4 x 3 1/8 Island Indigo, 5 1/8 x 3 Pool Party and 5 x 2 3/4 Whisper White
  • Stamp dotted strips from Watercolor Wings stamp set to top and bottom of card with Real Red 
  • Stamp "Just For You" in Real Red Ink onto Whisper White banner and adhere Island Indigo Bakers Twine bow with a glue dot
  • Stamp 3 step butterfly with Island Indigo and Pool Party Ink and then cut out using medium size butterfly from Butterflies Thinlits Dies
  • Adhere layers to card front, attach butterfly with Tomboy Mono Liquid Glue and apply a Real Red Candy Dot for the butterfly head
Hope you liked my card today! Happy Stamping!
