Color Dare #606 - Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful

This is my 2nd attempt for my Design Team project for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #606 "Four Square".  These colors inspired me to create a project with a butterfly or peacock using Journey, Royal and Capri. For this card a pretty Glacier floral design was selected for the background and because I didn't want to cut off any of the floral and leaves decided to make a slimline card and bordered it with Royal cardstock.  

Starting with the Capri butterfly negative pieces from both the Journey and Royal butteflies were taped in place. The Journey butterfly was then added to the back of the Capri to additionally hold pieces intact.  

The Royal butterfly was adhered direct to the patterned paper as a shadow and then the assorted color butterfly was adhered direct to body, used 3D thin foam tape for dimension and a Glacier dot for the head of the butterfly.  

The sentiment was cut in two pieces so that I could offset the sentiment to balance the card... that worked for me.  

Added a border with patterned paper and a strip of Royal to the inside border of the card base.  

Please hop on over and join us at Color Dare's Color Board #606 and check out the Design Teams inspiration, and then let us see what you create... hope to see you there.

My first attempt was to use the peacock but wasn't real happy with it, thus put it aside and did the butterfly instead. After completing the butterfly card went back to the peacock, added a few more feathers, adhered to a part of the same design sheet which picked up a light Lagoon.  Bordered the design paper with Royal and adhered to the card base.  Used the same sentiment and placement. I was so happy to finish this card because the image would have gone in my stash and been forgotten about.
