Bright Blended Birthday Card – Fusion Card Challenge {Bright Butterflies}

A challenge! I made a card for a challenge! My creative flow has been really blocked the past few months – this is my first challenge in a while.

The latest Fusion Card Challenge {Bright Butterfly} had me at COLOR. Right in my wheelhouse. I ignored the sketch completely.

Here is the inspiration:

I blended distress inks over a stencil, then applied another coat over the entire panel after removing the stencil. After that dried, I added white embossed daisies. An embossed sentiment on a flag, a layer to match the flag, and a trio of enamel dots finished this off.

Thanks for stopping by!
