Welcome - Color Dare #284

This is my DT card  for Color Dare #284 using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #255.  First time using this floral background design paper from Paper Fundamentals and really liked the look of the soft Glacier background behind the two-tone bolder Pacifica color cardstock.  Thought about piecing the butterfly but decided to leave it open to show off the background.  


Please stop by and view the DT's inspiration for these challenges ... and would love to see what bright and cheery projects you will create.  The Color Dare Challenge will be open for (2) weeks...AND you still have time to enter in our Color Dare #283 "Eggplant, Pewter and Goldrush"  Click Here. 

The inside of the card was stamped with honey cones in Goldrush and a few scattered flies stamped with Pewter.

Like the others above, I also like the open butterfly - it shows off the patterns in the papers. I love how you set off the middle strip of paper without it being overwhelming - perfect for this sketch while maintaining the blue colour scheme :)
