a red butterfly..

Hello!!  Stopping in with a card for a few challenges:  Color Throwdown, MFT sketch challenge and the MFT card design superstar challenge in the clean and simple category.  The current color combo for Color Throwdown is pretty dramatic so I decided to keep things simple.  I stamped the solid butterfly from MFT's Beautiful Butterflies in my favorite dark red ink SU!'s Cherry Cobbler and then stamped the overlay portion with VersaFine Onyx Black making sure to stamp it more than once to get a nice dark impressing.  I die cut white and black cardstock with the Inside Out Stitched Round Rectangle to see which I liked the butterfly against best and went with black.  The largest Inside Out Stitched Rounded Rectangle was die cut from white woodgrain cardstock.  I originally had plain white cardstock as the bottom layer, but thought it was too plain so went with more woodgrain cardstock.  The sentiment is from Springtime Blooms and was stamped with the Cherry Cobbler and then die cut with a Fishtail Flag Stax.  Layered everything onto a light gray cardstock base.  Adding this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of stamp it.



Have a wonderful day!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  SU! Smoky Slate, Ranger white woodgrain, PTI black; Stamps and dies:  My Favorite Things; Inks:  SU! and VersaFine
