In honor of World Watercolor Month, the background of my card is a fun watercolored pattern I call the Watercolor Butterfly Background. This method uses a butterfly as a mask and I watercolored over the butterfly.

Here’s a short video tutorial showing you how to make this background on one of your own cards.

The sentiment sits on a Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon that’s tied in a bow on the left side; On top of the sentiment is die-cut piece from the Gingerbread House Dies (it’s actually a little fence piece).

Tucked around the bow is a small Polished Pink flower cut from the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper, and a butterfly cut from the same paper. A few iridescent pearls sit on top of the butterfly for bling!
