Butterfly Camouflage

Happy Monday! Today the Print Candee Creative Team is having a blog hop-woo hoo! You can start at the beginning at the Print Candee blog:
{Me}
We have a local butterfly house, and when you're inside, the butterflies are so thick, they look like camouflage at times. The place is very inspiring! We're going with a die-cuts theme, and I came up with this card:


Dream Big.


I used Adrienne Looman's Photoshop Brush Butterflies available at Print Candee to make the background. I started with a white background in Photoshop and layered the butteflies to make my own patterned paper. I changed the colors, sizes, types of butteflies, and rotated the brushes to give the appearance of flight. When I finished, I printed two copies of the paper.

For the die cuts, I used the second paper and die-cut three butteflies. When I told my husband I had more than one buttefly die, he replied, "Why am I not surprised?" ;) I carefully layered die cuts over the first paper and popped them up with foam dots. Here's a close-up:



I finished the card off with a a die-cut banner, and I stamped the sentiment from Unity. I thought I would enter the card into the Moxie Fab World Die Cutting Challenge. The challenge ends tonight, but there's still time to enter if you get a chance!

As part of the blog hop, we're giving away a couple of prizes: a $10 gift certificate to Print Candee and a set of Spellbinders Lacey Nested Pennants--perfect for making party banners! To enter, you can leave a comment here and all along the blog hop. You have until the end of Saturday night to leave comments to win, and the winners will be posted on the Print Candee blog.

Next up is the fabulous Marion! Thanks for taking the time to visit. :)
