Butterfly Big Hugs

Hello hello~~ I am here to post a last minute card for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday challenge. =)

This week's Make It Monday challenge is Watercolor Smooshing and oh, it was so much fun to try this technique! =)

The background is made by smooshing Aqua Mist and Limeade Ice. I did the same thing for the butterfly except that the inks I used were Berry Sorbet and Summer Sunrise.

The sentiment is cut using a die from Big Hugs die set and I also cut a few leaves from Happiness in Bloom Leaves Die with vellum as embellishments.

That's all I have for now. Hope you have a beautiful day! =)

Thanks for stopping by!
