Color Dare #290 - Gimme Some Sugar

My DT card for Color Dare #290 was made using Atlantic Hearts Sketch #261.  One of my favorite CTMH colors is Tangerine which hasn't been in many of our color challenges so it wasn't hard to choose the top row of the TicTacToe grid  "Linen, Tangerine and Bashful" and adding some of the other colors from the Grid.  Used the main floral design paper and fussy-cut some of the flowers and leaves and attached with 3D thin foam tape to give the floral more dimension.  Tangerine and Blossom layers behind both the Floral Panel and the watercolor tangerine background.  Die-cut the picket fence, adhered to the watercolor background, adhered the floral panel on top of the picket fence and added a dancing butterfly adding liquid glass to the body and glitter to the wings. Left off any sentiment because this card could be used for so many different occasions and the sentiment would be written on the inside.  

Decorated the inside border with a tangerine and blossom panel, added a fussy-cut that was left over and cut another leave from the design paper.

What a beautiful card. I love the bouquet you created with the 3D flowers. The butterfly is so delicate and pretty but that cute little fence is the bomb!

The triple layers make everything stand out so much more! Amazing how fussy cutting such a simple image and then adding that butterfly takes your card to the next (several) levels. This is gorgeous! Atlantic Hearts ALWAYS welcomes your participation and loves seeing your designs - thanks for sharing with us again :)
