This week's Colour Creations blog hop is all about Bermuda Bay, which is a teal in Stampin' Up!'s colour range.  I have teamed it with Crumb  Cake and Basic White.

I stamped the beautiful big Butterfly Brilliance stamp, using Versamark ink, on Basic White card.  I heat-embossed the image, with white embossing powder, and cut all the butterflies out in one pass, with a co-ordinating Brilliant Wings Die.  The butterflies were coloured with Stampin' Blends markers, in Bermuda Bay and Crumb Cake.

After die-cutting a Basic White frame, using Fabulous Frames Dies, I cut a Crumb Cake card panel slightly larger than the frame.  A couple of smaller butterflies were tucked under the frame (I cut a little off their wings, so they'd fit), and a couple on top of the frame, before the largest butterfly was adhered across the centre.  At the bottom of the Crumb Cake panel, I added a border cut from Blossoming Happiness Dies, in Bermuda Bay card.  The background paper is Bermuday Bay DSP, from the Brights 6"x6" paper pack.

The sentiment was die-cut and stamped using the Sending Smiles bundle.  Adhesive sheets come in very handy, when it comes to cutting the scripty sentiments ... attach the sheet to the back of your cardstock before cutting, and when die-cut it becomes a sticker.

I added a white crinkled seam binding bow to the bottom of the frame, and finished my card design by adding some Glossy Dots.
