The Card Concept....butterflies

Hi everyone!

Here's the inspiration photo for The Card Concept:

I decided to use some of the colors and also add a few butterflies to my card.

 First I cut out a couple of rounded rectangles from Lil Inker for my background, one in white and one in Coastal Cabana.  I cut the circle with MFT's Beauty Lies Within #2 die from a piece of alcohol ink paper I made awhile ago. (Here is the link to a video on alcohol inks...warning..this is addicting!) 

 Then I cut a bit larger circle in summer sun for the back ground. For my sentiment I cut out and layered three of MFT's word die "wishing" to add some dimension, and stamped the rest of the sentiment in black. The butterflies are from Stampin Up and cut out with some more alcohol ink paper. I added a few pearls and a pierced banner from MFT.

Head on over to The Card Concept and join us...I think there will be lots of great cards many people LOVE butterflies!
