I had a few butterflies that I didn't use for the hop so I was able use one of them on today's card.
The butterfly is a nice contrast to the small delicate flowers of the Cottage Garden stamp set. My favorite thing on this card though, is the tiny patterned paper on the background. It is from the English Garden paper series which is a gorgeous collection of paper with a watercolored "look".
When I began to assemble my card I had the stamped panel straight up and down. No surprise there. Ha! But when I tilted it a little I actually liked it better - I think the tilted butterfly helps too. You have to look closely, but there are tiny pearls on a few of the flowers.
My colors were taken from the paper: Blushing Bride, Mossy Meadow and Melon Mambo. I love the blend of pastel, dark and bright all the while staying within 2 color families.
