Fluttering By to Say Thanks

Hope your day is going well so far. I'm here today sharing a card that I made for the Waffle Flower Challenge. I've been eyeing their challenges for a while, but this is my first time every playing along. This color palette was quite intriguing so I had to try it out.


It was a bit of a challenge for me to make sure that each color was added to the card in a deliberate way. I'm really happy with how it turned out although I wish that I had my sewing machine handy cause I would have really liked to stitch up the side edges of the Lost Lagoon layer. I love the bit of Tangelo Twist peeking out underneath the Lost Lagoon. My next layer was a bit of Something Borrowed Designer Series Paper and then a couple of butterflies stamped in Baked Brown Sugar. I added a fun patterned Polaroid style frame die cut from Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper. The frame was mounted on some coaster board to give it a bit of dimension. Then I added on another butterfly with some Stampin' Dimensionals and the fabulous die cut sentiment. Of course a few sequins sprinkled across to finish things. I love these colors! The Stampin' Up In Colors were perfect for this challenge!
