This week I am going to share cards made with the Butterfly Brilliance Stamp and Brilliant Wings Dies.  Both of these products are on the Last Chance List, so they are only available while supplies last.

I have a very simple card today because it is SIMPLY MONDAY!

I used the Watercolor Shapes Stamp Set to stamp the square background behind each butterfly.  This is another stamp set from the Last Chance List, and I am sad to see it retire.  

The butterflies were easily die cut from Glimmer Paper with two different butterfly dies from Brilliant Wings.

I chose Orchid Oasis and Parakeet Party as my colors.  I stamped a background in each color and die cut a butterfly from Glimmer Paper in each of the same colors.  Then I adhered the opposite color butterfly with a dimensional behind the body on each background.

A piece of Parakeet Party and Orchid Oasis Metallic ribbon wrapped around the cardstock added a little more sparkle.

Ad sentiment from the Easter Bunny stamp set stamped with Orchid Oasis ink, and a few Matte Black Dots finished the card front.

The most difficult part of making this card was deciding which part of the Ombre Glimmer Paper I wanted to use for the butterflies.   I ended up die-cutting a butterfly from both the darker section and the lighter section and trying them out over the stamped Watercolor squares.

I decided that I liked the more intense color of the darker butterflies, so that left me with two leftover butterflies.   There is no easier way to decorate the inside of a card than to use leftovers, so that is what I did.
