CAS Watercolor - Colorful Butterflies

Hello friends.  I am sharing a card I made for the CAS Watercolor Challenge - Colorful Butterflies.   I am just getting in before the deadline.

I used this pretty Dream Butterfly die by PoppyStamps that I won on Darnell's blog in the past.  This is the first time I have used it - thank you Darnell.  I made a watercolor section on Canson Mix Media paper with my Gansai Watercolors and then die cut the butterfly from that.  I used different colors to make the butterfly colorful and pretty. :)  I glued the die cut on vellum and fussy cut it out.  I added the body die cut from a Verve die and the sentiment from the matching stamp set.  I think the sentiment is perfect as God makes so many beautiful and colorful butterflies.

After I stamped the sentiment on the white panel I ran it through the Big Shot with the Subtle EF from SU.  The pattern paper is some older SU paper and I added a thin black mat.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I really appreciate your comments.
I hope you have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,
