Challenge #150  - Theme:  Easter or Spring Sentiment
March 3 - March 15, 2016
Sponsor:  Lacy Sunshine Stamps Digi Used

Digi used for my card was "Lil Cassie's Butterfly" and combined with Between the Fold Challenge #16A, which calls for using the CTMH Design PaperPak "Penelope."  Also submitting to The Outlawz Monday Greetings "Anything Goes" with the sponsor being Lacy Sunshine Stamps.    

Started with crystal blue cardstock, and layered with design paper from CTMH Paper Pak "Penelope", and cut a frame with the same design paper with two layers of colonial white for layering.  Cut two more larger rectangular frames using green and blue design papers from same Pak, used the negatives, and cut two more in colonial white to layer behind the blue and green panels showing the edge of the colonial white.  

Image was colored with ShinHan alcohol-based pens and outlined with Zig Wink of Stella pens, fussy-cut and adhered in die cut frame with 3D Thin Foam Tape against the blue panel negative and another green panel placed behind.  The stitched clouds added between the layers of the frame.     

The Sentiment was made in Cricut Design Space "Text" and then printed by Cricut Thin Pens, and then die cut with a sentiment panel, layered, and then adhered to card.  

The Flowers were cut in Cricut Design Space with colored cardstock, brushed with Zig's "Wink of Stella" in White to soften the color, and then added some Clear.

The detail in this card is amazing... So many layers and so carefully thought out. And of course, you used my favourite paper pack :) Beautiful colouring and composition. Love it!
