Butterfly Basics - Wishes - #GDP096

Welcome back everyone 😊
Yesterday I played once again with embossing paste. 
I found some colour inspirations from Colour Inkspiration lol I have a post to write tomorrow for that challenge.
I ended up making a silly amount of backgrounds just from using 1 tspoon of embossing paste for each colour!!! So you will see a few of these backgrounds over the next few posts hahaha

My first project using the backgrounds is with just a small piece used for #GDP096 
The challenge there this week is CASE the designer.

Just click her name to be taken to her CASE of her own card

I chose to keep the basic layout from Tanja's card and used the Butterfly Basic's stamp set.

Here is my card

I used the layering squares framelits to cut my background and ass the white layer behind. I distressed the edges and mounted them together with dimensional.
Using Watercolour paper I blended Wild Wasabi, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist and Sweet Sugarplum. Once dry I cut the butterfly using the Butterflies Thinlits and the solid butterfly fro the Bold Butterfly framelits.I glued them together and added metallic silver thread behind. I mounted this to my squares using dimensional. 
The colours for the embossing paste square are the same as the butterfly.

For my background card front I splattered the same colours over the card stock, also distressing the edges before mounting onto thick whisper white.
To finish the card I glued a couple or three of silver metallic sequins randomly.

Open and Angled view

To carry the theme through the inside, I stamped the fern leaf in wild wasabi and the little butterfly with words in basic black.

I do hope you enjoyed my card today.
