Ombré Butterflies

I am loving these butterflies!  This has been by far my favorite purchase from the new occasions catalog - and there is plenty in the catalog that could be a favorite!  I made the gold and blackberry bliss butterfly card the other day and had a friend ask if I could make it in blue for her son.  He's still a wee one and she said they always called him their little caterpillar when they swaddled him.  :) so I said I would make one and here's what I came up with:

The ombré background is just a piece of whisper white cardstock that I colored with my smoky skate blendabilities.  Lighter to darker, blending to make the (ever popular) ombré look.  Isn't it cute?!

Once I made that I knew I wanted to cut some ombré butterflies, so this time I colored some white CS again, this time using my Bermuda bay, wisteria wonder and pink pirouette blendabilities.  I cut them out and they sat on my desk for two days until I remembered seeing a card in the catalog with the three butterflies vertically on a card.  Now this isn't a normal sized card (it's 7"x3.5") but with the envelope punch board I'm certain I'll be able to make an envelope :)

The background is stamped in crumb cake ink with the honeycomb stamp from Butterfly Basics and the dots stamp from Best Day Ever - a stamp set you can earn for free!!  

The sentiment is also from Simply Wonderful which you can earn free too!
