IAAS Flowers and Butterflies

Our latest challenge is Flowers ans Butterflies so come along to International Art and Soul to show us what you can do.

My card is a 7x7 by Craft UK. The pale yellow card was embossed with an embossalicious folder by Crafter's Companion. I used Spellbinder dies for the bright yellow card and for the red mat to the image. All the coloured card is by Papermill. I coloured the image, by Sarah Kay, with my Promarkers before cutting with a smaller Spellbinder die of the red mat shape. After matting the image on to the red mat I set it against the  yellow circular diecut. The large yellow butterfly is also a Spellbinder die and that was set to the upper right of the image. The tiny butterflies are out of the bright yellow circle die and I scattered them on the pale yellow embossed card. Usually I don't use these but they were perfect for this challenge. I was finished, or so I thought. When I looked at it again the next day the  pale yellow card wasn't showing very well against the white. I decided to use one of my Promarkers, in Poppy red, to outline the yellow card. It looks much better now.
