Challenges for this Weekend - Card 2

This next card used 3 challenges, and set the theme for my stamp set for the weekend:

Fab Friday - Colour challenge #71

Seize the Birthday - Anything that Flies theme 

This weekend I am using the "Watercolour Wings" stamp set from the Stampin Up 2015-16 Annual Catalogue. This stamp set matches with the Bold Butterfly framelits to make it easier to cut out the big butterfly. The butterfly is stamped in 3 layers: first - Delightful Dijon (stamped off first), second - Delightful Dijon (Full colour), third - Tangelo Twist (Full colour).

The smaller butterflies are from "Butterfly Basics" and cut out with the "Bitty Butterfly" punch. The Old Olive card is embossed with the "Elegant Dots" embossing folder. The background uses the 3 dot stamp from "Watercolour Wings", stamped in each colour of the challenge (stamped off first to lighten the colour). The diagonal stripes are from "Butterfly Basics", stamped in Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive, once again stamped off first to lighten the colour.

A little bling was added to the card, with Dazzling Details used on the large butterfly and both smaller butterfly have 2 Rhinestones down the middle.

Check out the sites from these challenges and be inspired.
