My card is based on the color challenge at The Play Date Cafe. I knew I wanted to incorporate the butterflies with the chevron pattern into my card….just needed to decide on a color scheme.  The bright colors of challenge caught my eye.  I chose Hollyhock, Honey and Sunset for my colors. I
stamped my butterflies in second generation ink with the solid shape.  I then stamped in first generation ink with
the polka dot background. I hand cut the butterflies out and mounted on coordinating cardstock.  My banners were cut with the Cricut Artiste cartridge and then stamped with the chevron border stamp.  I added Bakers twine for the antenna and a little bling to finish off my card.
