Color Dare #440 - Crazy 8 "Choose 4 Panels in Board"

This is my Design Team Card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #440 "Crazy 8" with my choice of four blocks (Glacier, New England Ivy, Peach and Floral) and using the Try Stamping on Tuesday Sketch #502. Decided to as well to use TSOT's technique "Fun Fold" tutorial by Mary Deatherage's tutorial "side fold card".  

Color My Heart Color Dare challenges are carried forward for two weeks so if you didn't share your project the first week you still have another week to enter that challenge... both of these challenges are on the side bar of the Color My Heart Color Dare challenge blog. Please check out Design Team Cards and other entrants to give you inspiration and join us for some fun color challenges.

The TSOT sketch was changed to landscape to meet the Fun Fold card base.  Panels were cut for both the border and the main focal point with a striped glacier patterned paper.  On left-side panel a decorative edge was die cut, layered with glacier cardstock and placed a sentiment instad of the flowers.   

The focal point was also layered with glacier cardstock, floral fussy-cut from the complement patterned paper and adhered to striped background with tape and thin foam tape for dimension.  

Two butterfly die cuts were made, one in a peach design paper and the other in white. Decided it showed off the butterfly better against the floral using the white cut on top with a peek-a-boo of the patterned paper as a shadow on the bottom. They were adhered together on the body of the butterfly and placed on the floral.  Perl was added to the butterfly and some placed along the left-side of panel.  

On the inside of the card the same border on the front of the card was added to the right-hand inside border.
