SPARKS Picture Perfect Challenge

Today begins a fun new inspiration challenge over on the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge Blog!  This week's challenge is called Picture Perfect, to create a card using the following photo as inspiration.

Here's my take on the inspiration photo.  I loved the great vibrant aqua, dots, and soft feminine feel and used those as my inspiration.  All of the stamps on my card come from the fabulous set called Flap Happy.  It is filled with lots of different butterflies and trails to stamp behind them.  I just love it!  I've colored the butterflies with copics, fussy cut them and bent their wings out for added dimension.  They each have glitter applied to their wings and I've added glitter around the oval sentiment as well.  The background of my card uses a new border punch system from Martha Stewart to create the doily.  I added three strips of washi tape to create my sentiment panel.  I added a fun sparkle gem to finish off my card. 

 I hope you'll give this inspiration challenge a try!
