Less is More 375

Yesterday, despite the cold weather, I saw a monarch butterfly perched on a green archway in the garden. So when I saw the colours in the challenge at Less is More, I just had to play.

Here's how it turned out.

After colouring the butterflies using Stampin' Blends, I touched up some spots with a white gel pen. They are popped up on dimensionals over their Pumpkin Pie shadows.

The gorgeous butterflies are from the now retired Papillon Potpourri. The DSP is from last Christmas's Merry Melody paper. The butterfly punches are now retired too.

Update: Delighted to be one of three cards showcased at Less is More Challenge.
