ODBDSLC239: Inspiration Challenge

Good morning!  I hope your week is starting off well.  I have a cheerful and CAS card to share with you today for the ODBD Inspiration Challenge this week.  I love butterflies and watercolor so I combined the two.  The butterflies were cut from watercolor paper that I had done some washes over using some bright vivid colors with the new Fancy Fritallary Die.  I used the same die to do some negative die-cutting out of a white layer made using the pierced rectangle from ODBD Flourished Star Pattern.

I popped up this negative layer using lots of foam tape after stamping a verse from the Doily stamp set.  I then glued the butterflies flat against the card base.
