Three Shades of Turquoise

For my second card today, I was inspired by the challenges at:

Less Is More - three shades of one colour
Allsorts Challenge - butterflies
CAS on Sunday - sparkle and shimmer



I made the circle background in Publisher by using a circle pattern digi and pasting it three times colouring each image in a shade of turquoise. This sounds far more complicated than it actually was!

I cut 2 vellum butterflies using a free die that came with Simply Cards and Papercrafts a few issues ago. I added fine white glitter (which is very difficult to photograph) to the butterflies and used turquoise gems for the 'body'. The greeting is printed in a wonderfully funky font called Mountains of Christmas.

I love Bank Holidays weekends - so much more time to craft!

Thanks for looking
