Watercolour Wings | Happy Butterfly Card

The weather here at the moment is a little crazy, we've gone from a string of days with top temperatures of up to 42˚C, to days where it is almost cold (especially a few nights ago where it got down to about 4˚C). Suffice to say, my body isn't happy with the dramatic temperature changes and I've ended up a little under the weather. The resulting brain fog has caused significant issues with my creative mojo, so I find creative challenges perfect for times like these.

So the card I want to share today was created taking inspiration from This weeks Global Design Project #075 Winged Creatures theme challengeThe Paper Players Clean-and-Simple Challenge #332 & the CAS(E) this sketch! Challenge #209.

Here is my card:

My card uses the negative die cut technique for the Happy which cuts through the butterfly.

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my creation.

I will be putting a PDF tutorial together soon on how I made this card and it will be available to purchase on my blog once finished. I will update my post with the details as soon as possible.

**EDIT: I now have a PDF tutorial for this beautiful card available to purchase via my
