Doodled butterflies

The technique challenge at Splitcoast this week was a new way to "doodle" by tracing around the edges of a die with a white gel pen before cutting out the image, so you get a nice little outline (unless your die slips, as one of mine did). Then you back the cutout with printed paper.  It's a nice way to use the reverse of the die cut.

I used kraft as my main color and backed it with a pretty wild and bright floral dp that would be too much if it were all showing.  The butterfly and colors were inspired by the latest Fusion inspiration.The beautiful butterfly die is an exclusive from Simon Says Stamp.

The sentiment is white embossed, and I doodled a little border as well.

This card is for the following challenges:

Simon Says Says Stamp Wednesday: kraft
Fusion #4:  (inspired by a butterfly picture)
Sister Act #44: Anything Goes
Word Art Wednesday #119: Anything goes
