Challenges for this Weekend - Card 3

My last card for this weekend used challenges from 2 sites:

CAS Colours & Sketches - Colour Challenge #138

i Love Card Sketches - Sketch Challenge #42

This weekend I am using the "Watercolour Wings" stamp set from the Stampin Up 2015-16 Annual CatalogueThis stamp set matches also with the Butterfly thinlits to make it easier to cut out the small butterfly. 

This card opens in the front (alongside the Always Artichoke card). The background was made using the three dots stamp in all three colours, stamped off to lighten the colour. The dots were then highlighted with Dazzling Details.The Always Artichoke card down the middle was embossed using the Modern Mosaic embossing folder. The fancy outline butterfly is from the Bold Butterfly framelits set.

Both these sites have great challenges and ideas to stimulate the imagination.
