Feel Better Soon- A Color and Inspiration Challenge

Hi Again Stampers!
I wanted to take the time to share one more card that I created using the DD91Dynamic Duos Triple Threat Color Challenge along with the Fusion #4 Challenge and the LOVEFEST2014E Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoaststampers. 

Both sites have wonderful inspiration (of course, I am a bit biased regarding the Dynamic Duos site :-)) and hope you will take a chance to check them out!
To create this card:

Using My Digital Studio (MDS), insert the butterfly from the Touch of Nature stamp brush set and resize.  Print out onto a piece of 8.5x11 Whisper White cardstock and color using a Melon Mambo and Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Write marker (add a few shadows with the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker) and punch out using the 2 ½” Circle Punch.

To create the layers- emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Big Shot™ along with the Chevron Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder.  Cut in half and layer onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock (approx. 4 1/8” x 5 3/8”) and add the piece of Tangerine Tango Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the retired Summer Smooches DSP to the lower part of the card front.

Add the layered Top Note Bigz™ die cuts to the top half of the card (both from scraps and the Wild Wasabi piece was previously embossed using the Argyle Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder). 

Use the Fringe Scissors to “fringe cut” a piece of Whisper White cardstock, add to the horizontal panel of embossed Melon Mambo and Basic Black cardstock (all from my scraps) and add to the front of the card.

Add the split circle of Basic Black cardstock- cut the 2 ½” punched piece in half and adhere at the top and bottom of the Melon Mambo strip.  Add the Butterfly focal image and adhere the sentiment banner using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Add the two Brights Buttons with retired Black Hemp Twine in the center of the Melon Mambo strip and mount the entire panel onto a Tangerine Tango card base to finish off the card (FYI- my husband says the buttons look like eyes- lol!!)

Ink: Basic Black, Printer Ink- Black, Stampin’ Write Markers- Tangerine Tango, Melon Mambo, Sahara Sand

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi, Summer Smooches DSP
