This is another entry for PTI's Make It Monday challenge to use graduated color. The lavender color didn't work well for the sky background in my first card, but it sure does make for a beautiful butterfly, don't you think?
I cut the butterfly with SU's Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die (of course!) The doily was cut from a die I borrowed from Linda; I'm pretty sure it's from My Favorite Things. The background was stamped with Text Style using Versamark ink on (retired) Lovely Lavender. A little string of pretty pearls finishes off this very simple 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" card.
