CD#502 - 2-Color Only "Capri +1"

This is my DT card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #502 "2-Color Only".  Since Capri was a must use color wasn't sure which of the other three colors would be the best choice for my Butterfly Background die.  Decided on the yellow to make the card a little brighter, not sure if it was my best choice; but it worked.  

Cut two pieces of the Butterfly background (one Capri and one Lemonade), adhered the Capri background to the Lemonade background and adhered to black cardstock.  

To give dimension and show off the Lemonade background I lifted the wings and raised them with some 3D thin foam tape and Capri wings were folded at body and for more dimension curved the wings.  The smaller butterflies cut out from the Lemonade background were pieced in the Capri background with thin foam tape for a little more dimension. After looking at it now, I should have offset the yellow background to show a little more Lemonade, too late, maybe next time.  

Added shimmer to the Butterflies; but it does not show up well in the photo.  A "Hugs" sentiment was cut in Lemonade and added to the right-hand bottom of card.
