Wonderful butterflies

I made today's card by combining two challenges.
The Technique Lover's Challenge was to choose a technique from last year. The Technique I used was Color Blocking with a Twist. I sprayed my clear acrylic block with water and then swiped my markers across it (I used pinks and purples). Then I stamped it onto the white paper and it gives this really cool effect. I was originally going to put a larger butterfly on it, but it blocked too much of the beautiful background. So I chose to use tiny white butterflies and I put a little rhinestone on each so they are a bit easier to see.

The other challenge was the Clean & Simple Challenge to use die cuts. My die cut is the "beautiful wings embosslit".

I embossed the wisteria wonder (light purple) background and added brads to the corners. I also used my new wisteria wonder twine. The sentiment is from "fabulous phrases" and I popped it up.

Had to stop by here, Trish and tell you what a beautiful card this is! I love that watercolor effect and the butterflies look absolutely darling floating around on it! Great work!

What a beautiful background and the little butterflies are perfect! I'm glad you didn't hide any of the background.
