Butterfly Brilliance for FMS 477

 I used the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches for inspiration for the second outing of the Butterfly Brilliance bundle. 

This set is a pre-release from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue, coming out in May. While the stamps and dies will be available for the life of the catalogue, the Butterfly Bijou DSP is only available during this pre-release period, so if you love it - order it today. 

Butterfly Bijou DSP  $24.25 156824

I liked the idea of a square card, so went with that and used the Stitched Triangle dies to cut the DSP into two right-angled triangles, with the lines of stitching making the diagonal. The Just Jade card base is stamped with the Butterfly Brilliance stamp in the same colour.

I used the Brilliant Wings dies to cut a lacy butterfly from Basic White, then used Blending Brushes to  add colour. I considered layering up the butterfly but the background is busy enough without the focal panel over-doing it. 

The sentiment is from the ever-faithful Itty Bitty Greetings and punched with the Classic Label punch. A few Opal Rounds embellishments finished off the card.
