…may alight upon you

Sharing a QCAS card featuring one of the pretty images from the Butterfly set by Darkroom Door and a sentiment from the Dare to Dream set by Hero Arts.

My colour scheme comes from the current palette at Color Throwdown.  I’ve used each of the three colours in my mats and then the two purple shades for my sentiment and butterfly with the green coming in again with my embellies.

For my layout I’ve followed the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  My butterfly is the circle element, the thin rectangle my sentiment and the larger rectangle hinted at with my embellies.  The sketch worked well for a CAS card and allowed me to also play along at AAA Cards where they looking for cards that feature only one image.  You can go an optional twist of shimmer, which I have some of in the clear embossing powder over my sentiment and embellies.
