I am joining in with the Art With Heart Team’s Colour Creations Blog Hop with this Petal Pink butterfly card.

The Petal Pink colour from Stampin’ Ups!® subtle colour family is our focus and I have gone with a new favourite card layout.

  1. Lovely card Amie, such a unique layout with the angle on the front. The inside of your card is a beautiful finishing touch

  2. I bet this card looks even better in real life, with the gold foil on the DSP. The fun angles really draw the eyes to your focal circle with the butterfly. Lovely placement of your sentiment too!
