My second card for the combined challenges

The Play Date Cafe and CASE Study challenges have issued us a joint challenge, to CASE this card by Eva Dobilas, usng green, red, and black.


Here is my 2nd card for this challenge:


This card started with this new ledger paper from a K&Company paper pad. The flower was already printed in the corner, so I colored it using red and green watercolor pencils, and trimmed out a panel. Then I stamped my sentiment and framed the panel in black. That was placed against a Cosmo Cricket design paper, bordered with punched music paper, and then everything was put onto a kraft card. My butterfly uses a cut-out butterfly from DCWV Mariposa paper, layered over the same punched butterfly used on my card below, with a red heart gem added to it's body.


supplies: kraft cardstock, K&Company Brenda Walton Flora & Fauna Ledger paper, Cosmo Cricket dp, the Paper Studio "Textured Cream Sheet Music" dp, DCWV Mariposa Mat Stack, Hero Arts CL173 Simple Messages, CL377 Be Happy (butterfly trail), CH173 Heart Accent Pearls, Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly punch, colored pencils, ek success scallop punch
