Just for fun I decided to work with the fabulous butterfly die I purchased a few months ago from Memory Box. I sure love that die. And, I made it into an anniversary card because as as far as I know there are no weddings this year but there will be anniversaries.
I had a panel all done up on Tim Holtz water color paper which used the Color Bursts water Color granules in shades of red, yellow and orange. I always think those are great colors together. And, since with the blending they sort of drifted into a little pink I decided to die cut the butterflies from pink card stock.
My base card is ivory and I also stamped the sentiment from Gina K Designs on ivory card stock with red ink. I die cut that with a scalloped circle die from Cheery Lynn Designs and then I cut another scalloped circle in red with the same size. I put the two together and off set them a bit so that a smidgen of the red showed behind the ivory one creating a shadow effect. I then popped the sentiment up.
Along the edge of the butterfly pink panel I added a red card stock double scalloped border from a Cheery Lynn Designs Die. The last step on my card was to add rhinestones to the center of the butterfly and also on the sentiment area.
I just love these colors together and they remind me of hot sizzling days too! And, although we had a brief cool down here we are slowly building up towards the 90 degree mark again. So the sizzlin' summer heat is in session once again. LOL
