I love the watercolor effect and the vibrant colors of the butterflies. So that's my inspiration! Here's my card:
The butterfly lies inside the card, kind of peeking out the circle on the front:
PS (In case you're wondering, the greeting says "Happy Mother's Day" in Spanish)
I colored the butterfly stamp with stamp markers using the colors on the trigger. To help achieve a watercolor effect, I smudged the colored stamp on a water-saturated paper towel, and then stamped on the paper. I was not sure what to do on front of the card, but as soon as I saw this printed paper, I thought it would complement the butterfly nicely, so I went for it.
I cut out the circles on the front using Spellbinders dies. The circle on the card base is one size smaller than the one on the printed paper. To add interest, I colored the white section left in between the circles so that it serves as a frame for the butterfly.
