Summer Card Camp 2 - Week 2 Day 1 "Thinking of You Always"

It's week TWO!  New colors and new sketches!  Today, I just used the color pallette to get started with my design and found an oh so cute card on Pinterest by Leeanne Allinson.  Here it is!!

Even some of this weeks colors are in her card too.  Here is my take on this card for the color challenge. My greens still don't look quite right, even after Photoshop. 

Step by Step:
1. Cut pattern paper and adhere to card base.
2. Cut banners and butterflies with die cut machine and / or punches. 
3. Stamp and emboss sentiment on vellum.
4. Adhere both vertical banner strips and butterflies, using foam tape for the larger one.
5. Adhere vellum with vellum glue.
6. Add pearls and gemstone.

What I love about this card: Love the layout and the various patterns and textures working together.  The pearls look great on the butterflies and coordinate with the embossing powder.  This card came together pretty quickly and I would love to do this sketch again - it was fun!
